Create a folder in your H: Drive called TRIMAL.
Find 10 to 15 images of animals that you would like to potentially use for this assignment. Put them inside your folder. Make sure you find a few different angles of each animal that you choose.
You will need to create, at least, two imaginary animals that are the combination of three animals (not computer generated images).
The goal of the assignment is to have you practice creating realistic looking blends. You may need to use the Clone Stamp tool, or the Liquify Filter (we will discuss those things next week) in order to make things look convincing; but my main goal for this assignment is to have you master Layer Masks.

Go back to your computers, and...
Incorporate your 3rd animal into your Trimal.
Use your photo manipulation skills to mask out and blend the image into the composition.
Balance: A principle of design referring to the arrangement of visual elements to create stability in an artwork.
Symmetrical Balance: A balance arrangement in which the parts of a composition are organized so that one side duplicates or mirrors the other.
Approximate (Modified) Symmetry: The use of forms that are similar yet different, on either side of a vertical axis.
Asymmetrical Balance: A feeling of balance attained when visual units on either side of a vertical axis are actually different but are placed in the composition to create a "felt" balance of the total artwork. We will be looking at three different types of asymmetrical balance: Golden Ratio, Rule of Thirds, and "Golden Triangle."
Space: An element of art that indicates areas between, around, above, below, or within something.
