This image was inspired by the adjective, "ostentatious", one of my favorite adjectives. First, I used the quick selection tool to select the shoes, I put them on a new layer, and I refined the edge. I then used the brush tool to add the heel's shadow. Next, I opened the file in Illustrator and added the word "ostentatious" in Edwardian Script. Then, I selected the word and selected Image > Expand. I then used the pen tool to manipulate the "O" and draw it up towards the heel. Finally, I brought the image back into PhotoShop and used the smudge tool to blend the heel and "O".
