Honest Ads
Contest Directions: Tomorrow is Black Friday, and online and offline retailers will bombard us with "deal" ads, while manufacturers will make their best pitches why their brand is special and beats other brands. Let's stop and think for a second, what if some ads were honest for a change?
Photoshop "honest ads" for any brand or product, as in the examples above.
Please note that if you have any ad-blocking plugins in your browser, some or all entry images in this contest may not be visible to you, simply because the entry titles will likely contain the word "advertisement" which will make the ad blocking plugin think that such images are ads and thus block them. To rectify this, either temporarily disable the plugin, or use some other browser without this plugin installed.

        • Quality work, but I would stay away from wall-eye - it looks a tad too freaky!
        • I am impressed Newsey. You really are Anglicized! Most English speaking people don't even know what Wall eye is! However your definition is not quite right as "Wall Eye" means (one eye turned, as in towards the wall) and is commonly mistaken. The correct term is "Corneal hydrops, or fog eye". I just use it in chops when I want the guy to look evil LOL Since I have had some nasty run-ins with psychiatrists... well... I paint em like I see em hahahaha. I really disagree with their methods and lack of results.
          That aside, what is the objection foundation? It's just gross? Or some editorial point I am missing? We've done this in the past without objection so I am honestly curious as to what changed. Anyway, thanks for commenting and thanks to balodiya, pixjockey and all the rest that voted it up. happy holidays all, whatever you happen to celebrate.
        • Hey, Hits,
          Thanks for the insights into the English grammar! Points taken, will remember... fog eye it is!

          It's not forbidden to chop fog eye(s), I just feel it takes away from the chop adding the unneeded cliche and yuck factor, just like cross-eyes, or missing teeth. Just my opinion though, not sure how others feel about this.
        • Ahhh Okay. I wasn't sure if there was something I missed. Thanks. You know me, corny and cliché spinner LOL Yeah, I guess it is a taste thing. Stuff get's overused. I remember when you could not look at a contest without a Mr. Bean Chop LOL It did get old...

          And thanks HH. Yep, close. You have been in the pocket quite a lot. Not seeing near as much distortion and your color/contrast treatments have been simply terrific!!!
