Fat People
Contest Directions: In this contest you are asked to take any celebrity or politician people and make them fat as in the theme post.
We had this type of contest in the past in the advanced section. If you wish to see examples of what entries we expect, please take a look at the images in the Fat People contest for inspiration. You will have 3 days to submit your entry. Submitting it early will give you plenty of time to read the critique comments and edit your image accordingly. Typical FreakingNews entry guidelines also apply. You can find them here.
Your images will be critiqued even if you ask for no critique in the apprentice contests.
Thanks to babaloo for sponsoring this contest.

        • Beautiful work, would love to see the source picture
        • wonderful entry! i love the subtle details like the surface of her nose and the whiff of a moustache.
        • clean work and yes love to see your source.
        • Congrats on the win. Very nice job even though I have no idea who she is. Hey, I'm a geezer and don't get out much.

        • disturbingly realistic! i love it!

          tiny critique: there is a difference in saturation between liv's face and the source pic (left cheek).
        • this is looks natural. a source post will add your score more.
  • Fat Angelina Jolie

        • When you widened her hips you narrowed her arms. Maybe you could add a new layer of her old arms over the wide hips to make it look more natural.
        • Yep - the arms are definitely off. But otherwise a great job - fix it quick and you could be a winner!
  • Fat Heidi Klum

    Fat Heidi Klum
        • Nice thighs! Face seems lighter and fuzzier in comparison though.

          Also, the lighting on her head is rather bright, indicating an outdoor image source.

        • good point alanmania. my suggestion maybe try to edit the hair,lesser the hard light came from her back.
        • Yeah, I worked on the hair. The image was taken indoors - same as the other one. The light source is from two different angles. When I darken the hair it just doesn't work. It was too washed out to begin with. I tried, I swear. You know how they light these cat walk models from all angles with big floods. Thanks for the tips.
  • Fat Paris Hilton and Britney Spears

    Fat Paris Hilton and Britney Spears
        • hahaha britneys pregnancy wasn't doing her any good
        • you still need to work on both Britney and Paris, the masking on the heads needs a lot more work, the edges are blurry from the masking, and the contrast on Britney is a bit too much, also i don't know if you used the smudge tool or the liquefy tool, but is too obvious, because is very massy on Paris's neck
        • gali, thank you for your comments. I reworked the areas of concern a bit. Is that closer to what you are talking about?
        • yes much,much better, now try doing the same to Britney's neck
        • Britney's face is too green. Both of the twicted faces do not seem real. Fixing the neck did help. Maybe adding some noise or texture/grain will help too.
        • Thanks Keb. I'm try'n man. Is that better?
        • yes, it looks much better now. Good eye on the color match.
        • It just does'nt gel somehow.. maybe it's the distortion? The hands are too small too... Brill attempt tho.. good for you.
        • i give my credit to you. lots of editing done and you did a good job.
  • Overweight Tyra Banks

    Overweight Tyra Banks
        • I think her face should be a bit less stressed. Looks kind of odd, but other wise nice matching!
        • You did a great job on this.. well done!
  • Fat Tyra Banks

    Fat Tyra Banks
        • Good try - but those hands don't match in proportion? She does'nt look much different than normal. Try fattening the face?
        • Awww I LOVE Tyra =( it's a nice job but I agree with Laff that the hands don't fit in well.
  • Fat Paris Hilton Smoking

        • Funny one---but it seems like the left side of the face is fatter than the right side.
        • LunaC , I think I just stuff up the tonal part along the left side which in effect made it look elongated and flat, anyways thank you for your input, worked on it a bit more, there might be a slight improvement from the previous attempt. ][

          Thank you allanpanisa, your too kind.

        • He should have a fat shadow too, dontcha think?
        • Grimace's shadow is off unless he's suppose to be airborn.
        • Quarter Pounder wins in the Quarter Mile
  • Fat Lindsay Lohan

        • The Door Frame and reflection is warped from whatever tool you used to make her fat, you might want to mask her into a different layer then use the Liquify tool on just her.
        • she's looks flat(tummy). but still a funny job.
  • Fat Tony Blair

    Fat Tony Blair
        • cool but where is the rest of the pants? Also flag looks kind flat, even that i like your idea, it's so funny
        • The idea is good but the face doesn't match the picture. May want to add a bit of gausian blur to it. Also it seems like he does need another pant leg.
        • Great thinking here.. but the leg with flag needs some contour - try warping that part?
          He also seems a bit blurry - and the hands are too small for the figure. Aside from that mate -- a bloody good attempt!
  • Fat David Spade at McDonalds

        • I wouldn't recognize David Spade in this chop without the caption to tell me who it is.
        • haha, i did this contest more for the New Jersey of it. it was fun and gave me a laugh.
