A magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat. What is distressing you, Lu. An explanation of your comment would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Great as always splat,congrats on the silver
This is probably the most disappointing contest I've ever participated in, here at FreakingNews. I work hard to make my image good and keep the masking edges clean. All I can do right now is shake my frick'n head.
Thanks Debbie, your comments are very much appreciated. ☺
Congrats on the Silver (don't be disappointed, you got an eight from me).
Your work is always flawless Splat.I get what you mean about the edges,yours were immaculate.Try not to be disappointed,at least your not me.Mine was at 4th all day,and I ended up at 5th again.I try really hard,but I just don't seem to get there.Its frustrating cause I'm happy with a wood.Its upsetting and depressing,but it is what it is.I noticed no one votes anymore.There is 30 entries,but only 10 voters.Some with. 1 karma,so basically 8 voters.Cheer up Splat,you are a chop hero to me
Wonderful Job.. You know how these things go, at best a crap-shoot when there are others close in quality. I would have voted but did the hospital thing yesterday and fighting pneumonia. I managed to make a simple chop and passed out from the codeine . Glad I didn't enter this one, don't think I could have beaten yours or K9 . Congrats
I hope you get better soon Hits,I'm sorry your sick.I had double pneumonia and it was a b#tch.I noticed you didn't enter,I was worried about you.Glad you are ok.Get well soon,I miss your freakish mastery
Thank you Debbie, it's good to hear someone understands what I'm saying. The forum is probably a more proper place to address this issue though. So I'll just let it drop for now. Keep up the hard work, it's paying off. I've noticed a huge improvement in skill. And your style is also catching on in favor. They kinda go hand in hand like that. So stick with it and always shoot for the Gold. I kinda like being a hero. Thanks, Debbie.
Thank you Bob, Andrew, and Paul.
Thanks, Tim. I hope your feeling better and continue to improve. I have few friends here battling severe colds and bronchitis. It's a bad one, and just keeps holding on. Thanks again and hang tough, mate.
Congrats on the silver, Splat. It's like Alice in Winderland turned freaky. You know how to make a show.
Hugs, Andwhat. TY Yep SS, 'tis the season. I hope you feel better too. This thing came out of nowhere and dropped me. I'd never go to the hospital otherwise. By the way, you captured "Freakshow" and the spirit of it with sublime perfection in this chop. I meant to mention that last night but was a bit ding-batty.
Thanks Tim. Super Compliment. and tanks for the fave Thanks, Vlad. Thanks Martijn.
Thanks, Karar (K9). Double Gold, Great Idea. Double the voters and comments too, and we'd be in high cotton then. Not sure what the high cotton will do for us, but it sounds cool I hope you realize my disgruntlement is in no-way directed at you. You have a wonderfully creative and inspiring image. I immediately did research on 'how to create a cyborg' the moment I saw it. I just love it. Keep up the great work my friend.
Thanks, Gummy, Luciano and Crafty. Yep I still can't believe it. Well, it was an inspiring theme... one of my favorite topics, clowns and sideshows
And last but not least, congrats on the Wood Cup. I was hoping to sneak in there somewhere, but I was glad to see you win your first Quadfecta. Great Job HitMan
Oh this ain't the last contest hahaha You'll have plenty more chances to abuse me, hehe. After that 5th place in the last contest I felt the need to kick in the after-burners. This contest was quite fortuitous to fire up in A+++ mode because of my comfort zone. I dunno about you, but I get lazy and uninspired sometimes. And the minute I do that one of you guys or gals comes in and hands me my A55.
Classic and clean, nice choice of the colours. Congrats again on your well-desserved quad
Congrads on the foursome,made more in one contest then me last year. Way to go champ.
Holy Texas Hold-em Batman, 4 of a kind. My first. I’m just not sure how I am supposed to feel. Guilty. Doc did it all the time and he didn’t say much. AZ Rainman did it a number of times… also never said much. So, how about thanks. I think I figured out what I am feeling. “Validated” thanks to your votes. TY HH, Gummy, Luciano and crafty.
Smooth as silk and Top Clown Congratulations on the Gold plus 3... Awesome choppin HitMan... Thought this might have been your first Quad Win, so congrats on that milestone as well.
TY Champ. Yeah, I don't generally enter enough chops to sweep the cups other than in speed chop-fests.
Gold, Silver, Bronze and Wood Congrats, Hitspinner. You did not leave for all us any chance. Great job done.
Andrew. I reckon it was finally my turn. We are all capable under favorable conditions I suspect.I love chopping clowns and I guess the extra work and enthusiasm showed and paid off
,a quadruple whammy.Congrats on the sweep Hits
Ya like clowns, dontcha . Congrats on this big win .
TY Gummy, Luciano (I didn't change his face hahahahaha) and thanks Crafty
Beautifully done and just in time as the fat man bows out. Congrats on the Silver quadfecta HitMan.
Thanks Champ. Yep, I did this a bit before he dropped out but the writing was on the wall. Didn't take many brain cells to see that coming He'll most likely be back in 4 years if the New President su-cks.
Ok I'll try commenting again as the last one didn't take. This was my fave of your quad sweep. Congrats, congrats, congrats and congrats. Good job you don't need a real trophy cabinet you might need to build a house extension
PSH. Glad you like it. I think my fav is Eastwood even though his took the least amount of time. I actually had to chop that one twice. I made a rookie error and did not save as I went so got 95% complete and had a program crash. with two hours left before contest closed, I went into frantic mode and reconstructed the chop. Good thing I had been through the steps one time because I tore into it faster than any other chop I've done.
Somebody said: "Politicians are clowns in business suits." Does the 2016 election campaign looks like a circus to you?
Take any celebrities or politicians and turn them into clowns. (Mimes are acceptable too in this contest.)
Many thanks to hygglobert for the themepost
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Charlie Chaplin was one of the world's most famous comedians, for his brilliant acting as much as for the unforgettable comic character he created - The Tramp. Chaplin said he came up with the Tramp spontaneously: "I wanted everything to be a contradiction: the coat tight, the pants baggy, the hat small, the shoes large, the caine fragile". Today's picture comes from Guatemala where a local clown tried to impersonate Charlie Chaplin. Yet, to be perfectly correct, Chaplin was never a clown but a comedian.
Photoshop this photo of Charlie Chaplin clown impersonator any way you wish.
Photoshop the photo of this clown fish any way you wish. Some examples are: merge the clown fish with other fish, give it some paint jobs, use this clown fish 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.

Many thanks to Nhobgood for providing the source photo.
Comedians are frequent guests at the US Navy to cheer up sailors. Sometimes, the sailors are also cheering themselves by dressing up in clown costumes.
Photoshop this photo of a navy clown - a sailor wearing a clown suit while launching an E-2C Hawkeye (image credit: MC2 Benjamin Stevens/U.S. Navy) - any way you wish.
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this image of clown crossing any way you wish (image credit aprilzosia). Some examples are - re-dressing this clown, making his perform some stunts, making the clown cross new places, designing a poster with this clown crossing image, putting the clown into some new environment, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
