News in Pictures May 19 25
Contest Directions: Create images of something that happened in the news during May 19 - 25.
Here's an example of a news story that can be used:
Hillary Clinton caused waves of public anger with her RFK assassination comments in South Dakota yesterday. When asked why she still goes on with her campaign, when it's impossible to get an edge over Obama, Clinton said that this campaign is far from over and added "We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California." After shock and anger reaction from the public and Obama camp ("...there's no place in this campaign for such remarks"), Clinton issued a public apology saying that she did not imply that somebody may try to kill Obama, but used the RFK example to show that some campaigns may take longer than others. Whatever Mrs. Clinton implied, these comments have severely undermined her future chances of getting a running mate place from Obama.

  • Hitman Hillary Clinton

    Hitman Hillary Clinton
        • Nice work.
          Hillary's expression is priceless.
          Only critique on this would be a slight adjustment to your layers so as to place the left gun at the forefront of the target of Obama so that the red target line and the jacket lapel are behind the barrel and the hitman. As it is right now, you can follow Obama's jacket shoulder out to the tie of the hitman.
        • Pretty good. You made the light and hues agree
        • Great Job!. I can't stand Hillary but in all honesty I think her statements were not interpruted correctly. But that's OK too!

        • Thanks Coops. I got sloppy on that one.

          Well, 1 out of 641 ain't bad.
          Just don't let it happen again, lol.

          Very nice work, again.
        • One other thing. Is that a Zodiac killer reference on the hitman?
        • LOL Coops, I knew if I replied, I would spill my cards and give myself away. As always, I appreciate your eyeballs.

          Nannygoatman, it's a pentagram with the devil. I figured she must be praying for the dark side, if she is using an assassination excuse to stay in the race and even used it twice. The irony is Ted Kennedy now has fatal brain tumor, so her timing could not be worse.
        • Trust me, I knew it was your work before you replied.
          Nicely done, as always.
        • I like mine better. lol

          Good work though, I love Hildogs expression. But Agent 47 is a devout Catholic so the pentagram is misleading. Yes I'm a fanboy.
        • Congrats AZ, another masterpiece by "the Rainman", it's interesting that cooper spotted those blips, I didn't see them at all, but very good critique, and very good work!
        • Thanks all for the compliments

          Comics verses reality: Agent 47 rejected the church, never reformed, isn't baptized and never took catechism, so he being a catholic is an impossibility. As for why a murdering clone wears the Sigil of Baphomet, it is because he is an assassin and it symbolizes his disaffirmation of the Holy Trinity.

        • This pic is by far the most sincere,honest and as close to the truth as you can get without barfing! 3 thumbs up for Mr. Fudd!
          And he's got my 3 votes too!
        • Three votes!!!! Tough crowd here tonight laughing my arse off.
          It's the thought that counts. I sure hope you didn't think that 1 is best and 10 sucks. I see you are new and that is a common mistake. Then again... maybe the pic falls short?
          Anyway, voting shows that you exchange with the artist for his/her gift to you. I commend you and encourage you to keep it up.
          Surf away my friend, enjoy all the great artists we have here....
          Thanks for your valuable time.

  • German Baby For Sale On Ebay

    German Baby For Sale On Ebay
        • Very nice play on words with the alteration on the ebay logo.
          There appears to be quite a bit of distortion however around all the text as though some of the background has been masked out. If this is due to compression at the time of uploading then please disregard this critique.

          The background colour should be #EFEFFF.
          I believe that Ebay uses Arial, font size 13, no anti-alias and kerning turned off. The colour is #515151. For the bolder font it is Arial, bold, size 16, #000000.
        • Great choice of news for the chop - I wondered if anyone would do chop this one!
