It's not going to be anywhere near what …it looks now, it's just so I have a basic shape that I can work with. …Now, I use the same method I use for the horse. …I created a path right here that we see to surround the entire wing to separate …it from its background. So, I'm going to take that path and turn …it into a selection, right there, and bring the wing into its own layer.…

Okay, and as before I'm going to go in …there and in the background I'm just going to fill it with white. …Now, the point of that is that it, it allows me to really see the area that I'm …working in and so on. Now, this wing is going to be manipulated …quite a bit. So, the one thing I want to do right off …the bat is give myself a little more width on this canvas. …So, I'm going to go over here to my canvas and right now the width is set at …11, so I'm going to set it to about 18, be a nice size.…
