Bug Food
Contest Directions: Drugmaker Abbott Laboratories said Wednesday it is recalling millions of containers of its best-selling Similac infant formula that turned out to be contaminated with insect parts. The voluntary action affects up to 5 million Similac-brand powder formulas sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries. The company said the products may contain small beetles or larvae, which cause stomach ache and digestion problems.
Photoshop any food products or food items made with insects. E.g. think of how marketing (product packaging, product ads) of famous food products could change now that "bugs are included".

        • Hahahaha Big D! so this was yours! I sort of wondered but then thought it a little tame for Funkwood standards. But come to think of it, you do have some stinging types included. I just figured you for scorpions and widows oozing out of some turn of the century, brass contraption LOL You do sneak some by me, well done mate! This one was hardcore contender.

  • Green Bug Beverage

    Green Bug Beverage
        • Well then you rock, Geriatric hahahah Thanks man. I dunno, this was a confusing and a bit of a disappointing contest for me. I threw in what I thought was a formidible chop, maybe one of my best and only cleared 7.1. It's results like this that really shake my confidence as an artists that is still able to deliver the goods and frasnkly makes me think, maybe my time is over. It's happened a lot lately. But then I look at the stats and see that better than 50% lost karma. You and I are good but a lot of the regular players took a loss of 12 points or more. That being the case I allow myself the fantasy that maybe it's a fluke and just a run of very bad luck. God forbid I have to admit that I actually got beat by better chops hah! Anyway, perhaps I am loosing my eye and touch and maybe somebody would be kind enough to critique this thing and explain why it barely broke 7. I'm serious, would appreciate any input.
        • Nice is an encouraging word, many thanks RW
        • i love this one...excellent work and very creative
        • Cheers Iboud. TY so much.
          Anbody that didn't like it? Newsey, you commented to everyone else first then came back to me. That speaks either nothing or everything. LOL What's your professional opinion? Mucho thanks
        • Only thing that needs improvement is your SappEllingg(spelling). The voting public is, always, unpredictable and Artists are, always, sensitive. Everything is normal HS...not to worry.
        • Hahahahahah what did I misspell this time?
          Thanks for the comments guys. I have been feeling out of time and sync, not jut the art, but across the boards.
          I'm looking for whatever is throwing my stars out of balance hahahahahah

          Alrightie then. This contest will fall off the radar soon but I'll check back to see iof any of you have opinions to throw in. Thanks a bunch

        • Very creative blend! I like what you did with the peas
        • You know, I do get that your genius is terribly passed over because you are a pureist and subtlety is your strength. It's hardly ever been more evident than this. It is brilliant, actually deserves the gold for best freaking adapmutation to the contest. Freakishly brilliant and out of the box!
        • Thanks hits mate

          I love the subtle, changing and chopping till the subject still looks real/convincing. weird thing is I spend waaaaaaaay more time chopping the subtle ones than any other. I think lots of people sometimes think that because it's still real looking that there wasnt quite as much work in the chop as the big image hitters we do. I find it the other way round though. still I love doing them and creeping outside the box now and then to do it as well so it feels great for someone so top of their photoshop game to comment on this very fact

          Photoshop any food products or food items made with insects.
        • Just out of curiousity...what food items are actually MADE with insects...because I dont have a clue...not saying youre wrong. Maybe I misunderstood the instructions?
        • I think they mean something like.. A meatloaf made out of a fly or something... xD
        • There's no food items made out of bugs, that's what the theme is to do...make some
        • live and learn I suppose. All I can do is do better next time!
