    Joe Biden and Barack Obama Playing Pool
        • Wonderful caricature work, especially Biden! …I understand you were most likely going for an overhead pool table lighting effect, but in my opinion, It looked better before you added, what looks more like partial black-face or dirt, to the lower portion of Joe's face, minus the teeth area …
        • Nope... that's the source photo of Biden, Moon, it comes pre deranged! lol
          Google Joe Biden 2016

    Barack Obama Gets Swallowed By A Hippo
        • Humorous.

          [Edited by User on 5/11/2013 8:17:26 PM]
        • Great job, hidden … nicely composed and good choice of stocks, including his expression and thumbs up. Nice job on the reflections as well … my only nitpick is that Obama is a little sharper than the rest, and I think if you used a slight bit of Gaussian blur on him, the image as a whole would blend even more realistically.
        • Good point, Qtrmoonshop...done. The head, body and thumbs up were separate layers. The background posterior to the hippo is two separate images taken from shots of the Disney "Jungle Cruise" ride.

        • … that patch of sunlit grass in the left foreground is just itching for a few pcrddesque style objects with corresponding drop shadows …

          p.s. It appears that you flopped your background image but forgot to reverse the storefront sign on the left.

          [Edited by User on 5/11/2013 4:20:14 PM]
