This started as a photo of our dog playing with my husband. As you can see, I've changed him in a major way, lengthening his fangs and distorting him. The background is of the Spruce Burl Forest on the Washington State Coast. The overall effect is called 'Photocopy' in Picture It.

This is one of the best manipulations I've seen so far on BetterPhoto. Very eerie, and very creative. I hope this is one of the winners this month.
