The original image below was created using a photo of the sky I shot from an airplane recently. I converted it to black and white using Snapseed and used the Flood Filter app to create the appearance of water.
Next, I added the giraffe using the VFX Studio app. I used the eraser tool in VFX Studio to erase a portion of the legs to give the appearance that they were underwater.

Next, I took the above image into Sketch Club and used a low opacity soft brush and dark gray color to paint shadows along the lower portion of the giraffe's body. I changed the blend mode to Multiply.
