T Rex Celebrities
Contest Directions: When we think about dinosaurs, the first visual image that comes to mind is likely Tyrannosaurus rex (T-Rex). One reason for such "popularity" is that T-Rex was one of most powerful predators that ever roamed the Earth - it could eat up to 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite, and was up to 20 feet tall (6 m). They really ruled this planet, at least on the shore, thus the name "Rex" meaning "king" in Latin. The second reason why we associate dinosaurs mostly with T-Rex, is that the Rex has a very distinct "disproportional anatomy" like no other animal - massive tail followed by the powerful legs and feet, short torso, weak tiny arms, and a huge head. So today, we've been thinking, what if human bodies were designed with the T-Rex proportions in mind?
Take any celebrities and turn them into T-Rexes using the following procedure (please refer to the themepost for a quick example): Make the arms smaller and the torso shorter; increase the waist and make the legs really massive without making them longer; enlarge the feet; keep the head and the neck sizes (enlarging the head would ruin the photo realism as it will start to look like a caricature, so we especially ask you to refrain from caricatures in this contest). Please don't blend celebrities with any animal parts - ideally you should be able to T-Rex each celebrity using just one source photo. Here's a side by side comparison of the themepost to the original photo. Good luck! Please don't forget to include celebrity names in your entry titles. Apologies from Newsy for the "quick and dirty" job on the themepost - I did it just to provide an example. A quick afterthought here - is it just me, or the 'shopped image of Tom Cruise somehow seems more natural (the way we know the guy) than the original photo on the left which now seems 'shopped in comparison?. I wonder if Kim Karadashian T-Rex will seem more natural than the shopped photos of herself she's been putting on Instagram.
