Trick or Treat?
17 entries - contest ended 10/30/2014

Halloween is just around the corner and kids prepare for trick-or-treating. Remember that Halloween scene from "E.T." where everyone thought ET was just some kid dressed up for trick-or-treating? Say, if Obama went trick-or-treating, everyone would think it's just some guy dressed up as Obama for Halloween.
Photoshop celebrities and politicians trick or treating this Halloween. Many thanks to pcrdds for the themepost.

Katy Perry
22 entries - contest ended 10/26/2014

Katheryn Elizabeth "Katy" Hudson, better known by her stage name Katy Perry, is turning 30 this Saturday. Both of her parents were pastors and she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. Her first album in 2001 was self-intitled "Katy Hudson". She soon changed her surname to "Perry" (her mother's maiden name) since her true name sounded too close to "Kate Hudson". She's an avid smoker and loves good wine and beer. Katy's hit "I Kissed a Girl" was written about a girl she had a crush on. Now, after her concerts so many girls keep asking for a kiss with autographs, Katy says.
To mark the 30th birthday of Katy Perry, photoshop her any way you wish.

Many-Eyed Animals
38 entries - contest ended 10/25/2014

Most animals, like humans, have two eyes. Some common animals we consider to be two-eyed - frogs, lizards, and tuna - actually have three eyes. The third eye is located at the top of the head and is called "parietal eye" (or pineal eye) - it's associated with the pineal gland, and regulates animal's circadian rhythms and hormone production for thermoregulation. The peanal eye is visible as a small light spot in frogs, but is very distinctive and developed in Iguanas. There are some animals that have more than three eyes - spiders have eight, while sea stars, jellyfish, and scallops may have over 50 eyes.
Photoshop any animals (except humans) with extra eyes. Many thanks to Shlvng for the themepost.

Picasso Celebrities
18 entries - contest started 10/28/2014 8:00:00 AM

October 26, 2014 is the 133rd birthday of Pablo Picasso - one of the leading artists in history - most famous for co-founding the Cubist movement. Picasso was a big fan of distortion of reality when it came to portraits. He was often told by people whose portraits he painted that they showed little resemblance to the original. Picasso would always reply "Just wait, in 10 years there will be more resemblance".
Photoshop celebrities and politicians the way Pablo Picasso would depict them if he used the power of photoshop to create his works, rather than paint and brushes. Please use celebrity photos as source images, rather than paintings. Feel free to give your celebrities the famous Picasso cubist style (see one quick example), or his other styles like in example 2, and example 3. Please don't forget to include celebrity names in your entries. Many thanks to opcrom for the themepost.
