If They Were Here Now
Contest Directions: Newsweek ignited a media frenzy with its latest cover, which features a digitally aged Princess Diana strolling with the daughter-in-law she never met. From Vanity Fair's King James parody to other dead celebrities brought back to life, some are quite entertaining. Princess Diana would be 50 on July 1.
Photoshop any dead celebrity on any recent magazine cover, showing what his/her life might look like now.
Many thanks to GarRobMil for the contest concept.

  • People Magazine Marilyn Monroe

    People Magazine Marilyn Monroe
        • Nicely done on all counts! Great aging of Marilyn!
        • Looks gr8 & nothing like the "inspiration" link above. Many have aged Marilyn, though in my eyes her beauty remains timeless.
        • PSMandrake: No, I have not used this picture as an inspiration at all! Marilyn looks horrible there, just like a zombie! I think Marilyn was a beautiful woman and I wanted to keep her like that!

        • Who is the source photo on this I could swear it's Betty White but I couldn't find it.
        • I think this is a brilliant mag cover work!
          One small nit-pick - some areas on her face have more green shade in them - might need to adjust them
        • Yes, that's a picture of Betty White! Here is the source!
        • Thats too funny............ I knew it was her! How the heck did I know that! lol Congrats! on gold!
        • Wonderful win for the wonderful chop! Congrats Cam!

  • Old James Dean

    Old James Dean
        • I wasn't trying to say u copied it or anything eh I was just making a general observation re another here FN being so similar to yours, I don't even know if u had seen the one Mandrake did :/
        • It just shows that great minds really do think alike.....its happened to a lot of us in the past!
        • Quality aging work. The burning cigarette end looks not so real though - might need to fix it.
        • I think its one of the new electronic Cigarettes!
        • Excellent work! Congrats! I did check the source. Wish I could color hair and just the hair!

  • Napoleon Wine

    Napoleon Wine
        • Nice but how does this design fit in the contest
        • "OMG! A Picasso without imagination!... Let's see... Napoleon Bonapart, he's dead right!... and now his spirit languishes on in a old bottle a 190 years later! Doh!
        • I have to agree with picasso18. Its a nicely done add for the wine but it's not what is he doing today.
        • Yeh it is what he's doing today, he became a drunkard LoL
        • Well if his spirit is lingering on doesn't that mean he is dead as a door nail?
        • I also agree with Twister. I don't mean to be mean about it but this site is allowing again and again people to submit chops that don't adhere to the contest rules. I was just out voted in ugly pets by chops that were clearly not ugly but cute merges of two animals. There are people on this site that will give this high marks because it is well done regardless of wether it follows contest rules or not. If the contest says make a man into a woman and some joker makes a woman into a man it should be immediately pulled
        • Wonderful work.

          "His spirit lingers on..." nice play on words!
        • Gawd u guys....this follows contest directions absolutely!
          Dead celeb mag cover doing what he is doing today...drinking relaxing nothing..it IS on theme.
        • DD, why can't Napoleon be drinking wine today and endorsing a cognac brand? I am clueless how this is off theme.

          Congrats on the wood, Wiz!

        • Beautifully done, but why such a small image? Remember, bigger images will always bring you higher votes
        • Thanks, NewsMaster -- I need to read up on making it large -- this is nearly the largest size the site will allow, but there must be better ways to spend the 350 allowance that will make it larger than it appears. Good advice, thanks.
