        • Fabuloso! What, no Vatican symbol on the yoyo? Love what's written on his palm! LOL!

        • Oh, boy... you're totally gonna burn in heII for this chop, covered with golden trophies, hahaha! Awesome

        • this one must be somewhere in your top 5, funkwood!
        • Smart work done. Like the written idea on the palm.
        • Great work with sarcasist smile of the Pope shows all his intentions well done
        • Francis will agree with the overall job, but for punk symbols.
        • close race, funkwood, but of course this ends on top. by far the funniest pope chop i have seen. really a great piece of work. congrats!
        • I love it of course but the one below blows me away. Congrats on the gold!
        • Congrats on the Gold, Funkwood! A perfect 10
  • Robert De Niro Caricature

        • Another masterpiece! But...the body is flipped. Just move the handkerchief pocket to the other side.
        • Also this chop rocks, but pcrdds is correct.
        • another jaw dropper. love the mad men 50's feel in this one and you got his likeness spot on!

        • Clean as a whistle! Congrats on the silver too, Funkster!
        • This never broke 9.0 WTF? Even has a 6 and a 7 from some ...whatever. People, this it a 10, not a 9, 8, or 7. Okay. This here chop is the measure for all forthcoming chops according to Hitspinner. It is suitable for any magazine cover, anywhere. It is a commercially viable property of the highest professional caliber. If I had the power I'd cancel this vote and make everyone vote again.... correctly Hahahahahahaha Jeeze. Magnificent work, Dan. Really should be #1 but.. I give up. Clearly I must be missing something.

        • Thanks everybody! I appreciate your high praise Tim, I actually like this chop better than the pope chop also even though it was much easier to create. Everything fell into place fairly easy in comparison. I totally agonized over the pope chop, worked and reworked it several times and probably overworked it. In the end I was much happier with this one....But the voters have spoken and I'll have to accept it even though I don't quite understand it either Tim...
        • Congrats on the Silver! Another 10 except for the pocket...
        • I did not see the pocket as a mistake. I saw it as a refreshing change, honestly. A pocket on the left, a fixed idea and those are the insidious little program parameters that keep us inside the trap. A pocket upside down would have even been a cool idea,
        • I didn't see it as an issue until Paul pointed it out cause I've actually never owned a suit in my life, lol. Left side, right side it's all the same to me. I mirrored the coat so it would be consistent with the light source on Robert's face and thought it would be better than mirroring his face to make it work....Peoples faces look different when mirrored. That's why a person never really sees themselves correctly when looking in a mirror as opposed to looking at a photo of themselves.

        • That's some great tips on the mirror effect on faces, Funkwood! And Hitz is right, it should have gotten 10s anyway. But I thought like Doc, that the body was flipped (cig also in left hand) and you would win 1st and 2nd anyway, so work smarter not harder. Your a great inspiration, and we can all learn a lot from studing your work Funkwood
