Art Addition to Masterpiece

Find an image of a masterpiece online. I would recommend finding one with a person or people in it as it is much easier to incorporate yourself into the piece when you can simply replace one of the people with yourself. Make sure that this is not just any piece of art. It must be something notable that people with some background or interest in art might recognize.

Once you have found the masterpiece of your choice, use Photoshop to include yourself in it. It is a good idea to use the eraser tool on a very low opacity to BLEND and make this look seamless! Additionally, you need to match your skin tone to that off the part of the painting you're placing yourself in. Use the options under ENHANCE - ADJUST LIGHTING or ADJUST COLOR to achieve that. 

In some cases, you may need to use a different FILTER on the image of yourself to blend yourself into the actual piece. See some student examples below...
