My guide to making photomanipulations V2.0It's been a while since I wrote my first guide to photomanips and since then, I've employed a few different techniques in my latest works. I don't have a proper tutorial with screenshots of each step, but here are the steps I generally follow to create my photomanips (I use Adobe Photoshop CS6):More Like This
Get a photo of someone you want to manipulate and once you have that, start looking through the stock photos and photography sections for a photo of an animal, but make sure that the lighting conditions and angle that the photo is taken at are similar in both photos. You may need to use more than one photo and take elements of each for different areas of the face/body. Always make sure you read the rules for the stock photos or get permission if the photo isn't stock photography and ALWAYS give credit to your sources. See below for good places to find source images.
Copy the animal's face onto the model's face and lower the opacity of the layer

I've had quite a few questions lately as to how I do my photomanipulations. I'm self-taught and my methods have been developed completely out of trial and error. They may not be the best or most efficient ways to get to the end result, but they've served me well so far. I don't really have a proper tutorial, but here's a super quick and nasty ten step guide I chucked together of how I create my photomanips (I use Adobe Photoshop CS5.5):
