Nicolas Cage
Contest Directions: American actor, director, and producer Nicolas Cage is celebrating his 50th birthday today. Cage rose to fame in the 80, with his roles in the acclaimed movies like Valley Girl (1983), Raising Arizona (1987) and Vampire's Kiss (1989). His performance as an alcoholic writer in Leaving Las Vegas (1995) earned him an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award. Some of the recent box office hits with Cage include - The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009), Kick-Ass (2010), and Ghost Rider (2007 and 2012). Nicolas is a known collector of old comics books , he has been buying them on eBay for years. He is also collecting fossils and once spent $60,000 on a trilobite fossil at a historical auction.

The castle is actually a copy of the 500 year old Bavarian castle he owns in Germany. His dream is to import the Bavarian castle bit by bit to LA.
We wish Nicolas a happy 50th birthday, and many great roles ahead!
To mark the 50th birthday of Nicolas Cage, photoshop him any way you wish.

        • Wanted to be a Superman.... Good caricature and the balloon effects is really awesome
        • Awesome work!
          I have just one tiny suggestion - it seems the photo realistic elements are being deliberately blurred to look like painting. It's especially noticeable on some of the edges - e.g. look at the Cage's elbow right "next" to the superman's head. I think blurring is not needed as it takes away from perfection of this otherwise perfect chop.
        • All fixed Newsey, I forgot to clone sharp the edges after the final smudging to remove chatter. Big chop, sometimes one looses track. Thanks for the heads up. And thank you Balodiya and Rajesh for your kind comments.
        • Kid gone crazy for his Spider cake LOL... ultimate dressed for the Birthday bash
        • Thanks Steve, Ricky and PJ. LOL I didn't vote either. It is an occupational hazard when you are married. Those honey-dos (honey do this, honey do that)seem to always come when you sit down to vote. This time it was a meltdown of biblical proportions over PDF files Joni received and couldn't print. Naturally I know about as much of PDF files as I do of the mating rituals of earthworms, but I am still required to solve the problem... NOW!!! Hahahhahaha Everybody knows exactly what I'm talking about, I bet LOL
        • A long way chop ! Victory well deserved !!!
        • Congrats on the gold, Hits!
