I had time to climb in the last contest, haci decici modify it to the freak show. Member reactions:
Who is the guy in the middle and the guy on the skateboard.
Congrats on the Silver, Elegary. Why did you not enter this in the vintage car competition. It is very good.
Congrats on the silver, Elegary. Your chops are technically brilliant, but from the composition point of view make little sense. In this chop, for instance what's the connection between Putin, Bush, Mr. Bean and this vintage Citroen car. The car driver and the passenger are elements that are totally random here too. It just looks like a big composition with randomly thrown characters. Just like writing a "book about everything". See what I mean.
I know a lot of work went into it, to an average voter it would look like the very tiny part of the source is used (the car windows and top) for blending with the race car. In the end art is about the result and the impression it makes, more than what went behind the curtains to create it. If more of the source car was visibly obvious here, it would score way higher I think.
Would make a great poster. by the way do you know the allowed upload size has been increased to 500KB.
Nicely assembled Hidden. The reflections were handled masterfully.
Thanks. You want me to upload larger pictures, Newsy.
I just want you to know you are not limited by 350KB any more
Excellent....I could see one of the car companies using this as an ad.
Precision work with the sources, well done.
500k is super cool, I m feeling lucky. now expecting all of your HD work here . good job
Congratz Jere, Could have easily taken gold. One great idea, materialized Xtremely well.
You pulled off something pretty cool, Jere. You got two realistic style chops to garner cups over a pretty meaty fantasy chop in the A+++ class. That friggin impresses me and doesn't happen very often. Congrats my friend. KUTGW
Congratulations for the Bronze J-Mix. Very Impressive Work..
This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Many cars made in the 50s, 60s, and 70s are still in excellent condition these days when taken care of properly by the collectors. Back in the old days, cars were made to last 20 and more years. These days, people are so used to having new car models every 3-4 years, that most recent cars are made from cheaper materials meant to last 10 years max - after that you will need to change the engine and most parts to keep it going. At certain point it will be more expensive to "rebuild" this old car than to buy a new one. Besides, who wants to drive the same car model for 10 years? Thus the new motto for the auto-makers - cheaper-built cars meant to look good but not to last. The prices for these new cars are not so low though, but they say it's only due to inflation. Right.
Photoshop this vintage car photo any way you wish. It's a Citroen 2CV "Deux Chevaux" (thanks, MsgtBob!). Stock photo credit: i k o
Venezuela is starting to use abandoned cars to provide materials for housing construction. There are almost 11,000 abandoned cars to be crushed for steel and other materials to help build or refurbish 150,000 hosing units for low-income families. This government initiative will drastically reduce the needs for local steel and will save natural resources by recycling.

Photoshop this photo of this racing sports-car any way you wish. Some examples are: Show change the racing driver, merge the sports car with other objects, use this sports-car racing image in posters and paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
This is an Apprentice Contest. You are eligible to enter this contest if you have less than 5 golden trophies at Freaking News.
You have 7 days to submit your entry. Submitting it early will give you plenty of time to read the critique comments and edit your image accordingly.
Many thanks to Jiří Nedorost for providing the source photo.
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this photo of the three-wheeled car (image credit: Selena N. B. H.) any way you wish. Some examples are - re-design the three-wheeled car, change the passengers and pedestrians, use this three-wheeled car image for some advertising campaign, etc. These are just some ideas.
With gas prices reaching up for the sky lately, consumers tend to prefer smaller cars to big cars more and more. Besides lower gas consumption and lower car price, smaller cars are much handier for tight city traffic and especially for city parking.
Take any car and make it smaller, more compact, one way or another. Here's a good example by Mandrak.
Many thanks to Disasterman111 for the contest concept.
