Remembering Mickey Rooney
Contest Directions: Legendary actor who entertained audiences for more than 80 years, Mickey Rooney died on Sunday. He was 93. Mickey started acting at the age of 6 and became a box-office powerhouse in the 30s and 40s. Through his long life he had 8 wives and 9 children, and received multiple awards, including two Academy Awards. Rooney also got into Guinness World Records as an actor with the longest career on stage and screen. Sadly, America lost Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney both within a few months. It really is the end of an era. R.I.P. Mickey, you will be missed.
To pay tributes to Mickey Rooney, photoshop him any way you wish.

        • Great tribute caricature! He kinda reminds me the young Rick Astley here
        • old cute smile in face i like the wa he did it
        • Nice looking chop … it really catches the eye!
          Lol Newzmaster
        • Thank you *Luciano, QMS, Evirio, Sulli, Eric, Thomas, Newsmaster and Doc. I am not very familiar with Rick Astley but am real familiar with this guy LOL.

          Photoshop tip: An old photo-retoucher's trick is to always start with a sepia tone first rather than B&W to colorize. It makes a 1000% difference in believable color control.
        • Thanks Elegary, often low votes are statements by the low voters that their own art is so bad, the only way they feel they can win is by minimizing yours. Everyone gets them. Hopefully the admins get so insulted that somebody would do that on their watch that they raise he11. They are our champions. Thanks for the votes and comments, Doc, Luna C] who I thought created the winning entry, Wanderer and Newsey
        • Congrats on the Silver Hitspinner … It was a close one, my weighted average was at 9.23 up until the very last vote which knocked it down to 8.981 … you never know what can happen at the last minute. A lot of fine work!
        • Thanks Bob, Pat and QMS. Yeah, we split the 2 available 300 Karma votes. So the contest was really decided by Armatien, Evirio, Eric and Pat the 200 Karma folks that did not enter. The remaining entrants that did vote looks like a really consistent cluster so it mostly was decided by the 4 200 karma. Pat (Geriatric) voted 10 for you and 9 for me which was the degree of separation thus the winning vote for you. So buy him a beer Well done on your win. I don't mind loosing to a better or equal chop.
        • Congrats on the win, he is so darn cute and as always Fantastic work.
        • Thanks Hobbit. Looks a little like Harry Potter's sidekick to me

        • good work in photoshop for colourization
        • The themeposts we publish are basically mid-sized thumbnails. If you want to use the larger version it's better to use the Google's "search by image function" on the themepost
