How many of you can and like to ride horses? While many of us do it for fun, it takes a lot of stamina, time, and training to become a professional jockey. Racing an expensive horse in the Kentucky Derby is like racing a Ferrari on Formula 1 - you have to become one of the very few "chosen ones" to have this privilege.
Photoshop this image of a jockey flying his horse any way you wish. This is a speed contest with slightly more that 24 hours for submissions.
The upcoming year 2014 is The Year of The Horse. The horse is the 7th zodiac sign in the 12 year Chinese cycle. Horses are present in Chinese legends way more than any other animals. The Greek mythology worships horses even more - they even created the legendary half-man, half-horse creatures - centaurs.
To greet the upcoming 2014 Year of The Horse, create your own horse by using parts of different animals (or humans).
There's a big meat scandal in the UK where many beef products tested positive for horse meat. UK's biggest supermarkets Tesco and Asda had to pull many beef products amid the scandal.
But the horse meat panic has spread further and caused authorities in several European countries to test many beef products for horse meat. The result? Ikea's Swedish meatballs at least partially were made of horse meat.
Now, who's horsing around and labels horse meat as beef here? The beef suppliers in question were asked whether they had been knowingly labeling horse meat as beef. Their answer was... "Neigh".
Mix horses with other animals, humans, or objects any way you wish.
A French woman wants to become the first human-horse hybrid by having horse blood transmissions. For months Marion Laval Jeantet gradually prepared herself for horse blood injections, by njecting herself with small doses of horse immunoglobulins so that her body does not go into immune shock when horse blood is injected. Such "training process" is called mithridatization, after Mithridates IV of Pontus, who is said to have developed an immunity to poisons by gradually ingesting small doses of them. After the first successful horse blood transfusion, Marion put on stilts resembling horse legs and performed a communication ritual with a real horse. "I had the feeling of being extra-human. I was not in my usual body. I was hyper-powerful, hyper-sensitive, hyper-nervous and very diffident. The emotionalism of an herbivore. I could not sleep. I probably felt a bit like a horse," said Marion about her experience.
Mix humans and horses any way you wish. Here's a good example by photobob.
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this horse grooming image any way you wish. Some examples are - making this horse or girl perform some stunts, making the girl groom some other animal, designing a poster with this horse grooming image, putting the horse or a girl into some new environment, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
