This is outstanding. Brilliant and Exceptional work. Love it.
caricature seems has become an issue in theese contests . Is this photoshopping .
Yes this IS photoshopping lucianomorelli ...at it best. Lovely work.
I find warp and liquify are mercy-less demons, this is outstanding work.
Like I said in the past........ photorealistic chops are a thing of the past and that is where it all started. It's all about fire and ferries and bubbles and filters and .................... Good pic. I made the mistake of doing a caricature on Worth and was DQ'd faster than you can blink an eye.
Yes this is good work, but a nice clean realistic photo chop is still a tough work of art.
toadly... I agree but they are just not recognized or appreciated anymore and always lose to the filtered fire and ice.
hmm, What ever the chop is. It is a great piece of art. It is not an easy to play with wrap and liquify tool. We are very lucky that we have these type of artists in FN.
Hidden Author, Yeah, Just way to go Man.
How does a caricature of Obama fit in with the link.
I thought about that too Pcrdds. I do'nt get it .....
Obama isn't the subject here...Toy Soldiers are, the author just used Obama as the Toy Soldier subject...it could have been anyone they used, open your mind people.
touchy subject... and so many comments exchanged. i sort of have to agree with Luciano, FN seems to me to have become less of a fun place for thought used by amateur chop-ers and more and more a quasi-pro place for full-time Photoshop-ers. Too Bad. / Dommage . / È peccato .
What I find sad is that the "anti caricature brigade" find it necessary to discuss this sort of thing on someone's entry. (for whatever reasons they might have at the moment) Spare a thought for the author here guys... Nice chop
Great piece of work. What I like about this is that it's a PHOTO caricature, not a classic drawn caricature, and such chops often place high because they are amazing PHOTO distortions of reality.
Agreed with Mac, Seems a group of people targeting and I don't understand is this discussion necessary.
Krrish: I agree, such discussions are better suited for the forums
i also concurr with Mac - and of course, Hidden, i could have been explicit: my comment was not aimed specifically at your entry. i repeat, touchy subject: my comment was number 25 or so, and now we're close to 40.
Going back to my earlier comment about me agreeing with pcrdds i never said that i think the caricature of Obama was bad . I think its very well done . The point was , the news story says its about the action figures of the 80's like GI-Joe & Rambo . Obama was'nt even around back then. Thats it , point said .
I think Rwpike sets the bar/standard for caricatures. at first i thought this was one of his.... also Art is always in the eye of the beholder.. Great picture.
