I'm setting this up mostly to jog my memory on how I did him.
Started with a photo of an adorable bog pony that I had to align and tweak to get him to 'figure' stance.
Outlined the pony and the edges of the mane, tail, bridle and main changes in coloration.
By selecting the outline, I created a blank version of Bill, which I should have saved, then colored it in.
The goal was to overlay the modified photo-realistic image over the cartoon image, varying the opacity of the various layers to get an image that is nearly ready, then tweak it to where it is ready to post. Tweaking mostly involved work on the mane, tail and smoothing out areas that didn't quite look right.
To do the overlay, I owe many thanks to cowboyleland, who taught me how to do what I wanted to do.
Paste your layer,(Edit: don't anchor it) go up to the "windows" tab, select "Dockable Dialogues" and "Layers" (apparently Ctrl L does the same thing?) The Dialogue window that pops up has an opacity slider or you can enter a number.
All of these, combined with adjusting brightness and contrast of the two images resulted in Bill. I had to go back and rescale, but I'm happy with the results.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
