Sax Day
Contest Directions: November 6th is Saxophone Day, celebrating the birth in 1814 of Adolphe Sax, the Belgian genius who invented the instrument in 1840. We owe the saxophone popularity to jazz. The instrument was originally created for jazz bands where it quickly replaced the clarinet. The largest member of the sax family is the contrabass, the smallest is the soprillo and is only 12'' long!
In this contest, photoshop people or animals with saxophones. Many thanks to Mundo for the themepost.

        • Stunning work, and very fitting the Bill's character. He is a known sax addict!
          I remember those famous photos of him playing sax when he was first elected president... been 24 years ago!
        • Congratulations! Beautiful work! Love all the details!
        • Thanks everyone! Votes and comments much appreciated.

        • Octopus Jazz. To easy with so many hands (legs ?)
        • Congrats, Hitspinner! Perfect as always.
        • Thank you Wanderer. Bob, Doc, Champ. Perfect is a very kind and lofty word. But I LIKE it LOL
        • Creative artwork - congrats on the silver, Tim!
        • Congratulations, Tim! Great work on making the whole character! When you go non-human, you gotta WORK!
        • Wild concept!! Congrats on the silver Tim! Yeah this was a close one all right. I really thought you had it.

        • Perfect! Republicans seize Senate, get full control of Congress Obama'll be sad for next 2 years.
        • O-Bama!! why cry.
          Amazing caricature and Pigeon coming out of Saxophone is Awesome
        • Enjoy the music Whether u r happy or sad. Nice
        • Top player here. Reduce a little the shadow under the hat.
          It looks floating.
        • Great Job!!! Love the use of color. Congrats on the bronze
        • Congrats! Great job done, Elegary. Fav's.
        • Decent work, thought it'd be better to have things that connect to each other and Obama character. He seems to be in Slavic kind of room with doves and fairies - all of which is really unrelated especially to Obama. Technically a great work though.
        • Congratulations!! I like the textures. I do wish the curtains weren't just flipped images. But that's a minor detail amongst so many gorgeous choices. Great job!
        • Nice work Elegary, congrats on the bronze! Just a small tip...Toning down the back wall and curtains a bit would make the foreground images pop, but you're definitely on the right track.

        • Wow ! But how can he play sax with open mouth ?
        • He's taking a breath, preparing to blow. You never played? Too bad.
        • Congratz on the Wood, Icy! Great colors
        • Well constructed!!!! Congrats on the woody, quite a big win considering...
        • Congrats, IcyAllEyeCan! Nice birdy jazz band.
        • Really funky stuff - one of my favorites in the contest!
        • No, that's the inside of his cheek. TO be frank, I did more on this image after the deadline passed, so my final of it has all that darkened in. Other small fixes, too, so I'm happy it placed as is. Thanks!

        • Magnificent work, but the original submitted image is quite small. As a result, after the automatic resize its resolution dropped.

        • DeMint: 'Obama has lost contact with reality'
        • Nice Collection of the characters. Mr Obama looks very young.
        • Could be great but Obama's head is so small.....
        • Sure is! I love all the candy. Well done
        • Lots of work here, but for my tastes, it's everything but the kitchen sink. If it'd just been the aliens with saxophones, it would have been more likely to win, I think. Ah, I could be wrong.
