Any good techniques for this?

I am attempting to make some pixel art, and I got that handle. It's a little short, so are they're any good techniques to lengthen it by copying it or something? Of course I can do it manually, but I'd like to know how to be efficient.

Never mind, but actually I just made a selection and copied it so it's a float. I placed it in such a way that the two pieces fit together.

RE: Any good techniques for this?
The image doesn't work, but my guess for a quick way

1. select end of the handle (the hilt part, like in a sword)

2. Copy & paste, "Paste as new layer" or click the floating layer & name it.

3. with the move tool Move Move the handle to how long you want it.
(Easier to extend if its in 90 degree angles)

4. Merge down the top layer (the handle)

5. Using the Clone Clone stamp, define the source at the bottom of the pole, where the shovel starts, and draw toward the handle/hilt.


2 "*" denotes area to copy
(`,`,`,]========= * =[] *


4 |start clone stamp source here|
