Hello @pepeh :)


Have a look in our Search area https://www.getpaint.net/search.html and take a look for an awesome tutorial called "Cutting out images the EASY way."


Also, after erasing the logo outside of the tail ........ you could clean up the tail like this:

In your first image of Kaptian Bomba I was able get rid of most of the black background with the Wand Tool by setting the Tolerance to 6% and clicking on a black area of the background. It still left a star field with anti-aliased artifacts around each star and areas around part of the text. It also destroyed some of the black outlining of the Kaptian figure. You could start by using the Eraser tool to remove the stars by erasing them with a brush width of ~90 px to remove large area of stars then zoom in and reduce brush width to remove stars that are closer to your main subject.


It will not be a one click operation!
