Thrift Store Baragon!! (and How To Do It)

This was a project of mine, during the last week...the hard part is finding a suitable painting: 

Then, another hard part is drawing what you want to scale! (Note: there are a couple of different ways to do this...by hand, or complete a drawing you really like, then re-size it on a photocopier or computer.)

Then, another hard part is scanning it and putting it into Photoshop, so you can have a rough draft, and decide exactly on your placement...(and erase what you don't need):
Finally, the hardest hard part of all...I recommend buying some carbon paper to help you (carefully) transfer your drawing to the painting.
From there on in, the rest is simple....not really, this was another hard part.

But at last, you have a finished work, suitable for a gilded frame...oh wait, it came with one! Even better!
I think this one turned out much better than my first attempt, Thrift-Store Gamera.
