Step4 Selected Loon Rocked and stroked a light red 10 px wide on it. Then in effects applied

an outer glow of bright red. Then selecte the outline and contracted the selection by 2 or3

pixels and deleted the selected area.

This same procedure was done to all the body segments and to the two dice as well as the

spots on the dice. The three eyes were added and the same procedure on them too.Right arm

and hand were copied and flipped horizontally so we have two full hands.
