Crimes against the people. Nixon resigned the presidency before he could be impeached and jailed. 1974 Source photo Member reactions:
Great work overall, but I would not guess it's Nixon without reading the title. I think you've started with his photo in his last years (like this one), then changed it quite a bit too. Honestly I would prefer no change to the face at all rather than guessing who is chopped here. No change to the face would work just great here with decent blending.
Actually this is the source. I just gave him a high forehead and fattened his jowls. It was in his latter years SOURCE I already invested 7 hours. And it looks enough like him to the two other people that I have shown it to. If I get more complaints I may putz with it some more. But for now.... Found time.... Fixed
He looks more like him after the edit, but I see the following changes you did to the original Nixon photo: changed his head shape - turned the pointy wide forehead into a vertically stretched rounded oval. The jaw got longer and lost his shape with those fattened sagging bulldog cheeks, and increased chin. You made the ears bigger, and did change his eyes the most. They are not dark distinctive Nixon's eyes any more but some kind of tiny amber glowing spider eyes. Added red layers on the eyes area killed his distinctive eye bags - they look different now. Sorry for this hard critique, but I feel a change to face features is only good when the subject's distinctive features are exaggerated in moderation, not changed for the opposite. I did so many similar critiques on your chops that I feel I'll shut up next time because you keep doing your thing, and I keep feeling it wrong. It's probably just a difference in tastes, because other members don't seem to have an issue with such modifications in your chops. But personally, I feel it's a pity that those face modifications take away from otherwise great chops of yours.
Thanks. It is simply a style, yet perfected. I am not trying to be Rickytrek or Pike or any of the other choppers that have an incredible style yet barely distinguishable from the other. So I tend to work the caricatures from a different approach. I tend to mix it up a lot, try to keep it fresh and entertaining. I throw a lot of different styles out there because every chop should be a new performance. But every performance isn't going to rock the house, especially when you continually explore new ways to present the material and try to avoid stepping where other choppers have already been. So my aim is to keep a standard of technical excellence And I am acutely aware that I have set the standards for which my chops are judged. It is hard meeting those expectations. Anyway there it is, that is the thing
This caricature is really awesome wether it is close to the subject or not.
Well my theory that negative review during contests equals the kiss of death just went all to he11. Thanks folks.
Congratulations for the Win, Hits. Great Job, really like his secret tape on a chain.
How DARE you say I have a handful of noses, lips and ears that I use in a machine fashion. Each and every caricature is independently done for each chop. I take great offense at your comment.
My apology Doc. Thanks Toledo Eagle Wanderer and Doc
Congrats on the gold, Hits. Sorry if I caused any trouble this time.
Ray-Ray’s Guilty Conviction Ex.Mayor Facing 20 Years Former N.O. Mayor Ray Nagin, mostly remembered for his bizarre Post-Hurricane Katrina behavior and his controversial comments “New Orleans will be a Chocolate City” and New York still haven’t fixed their “Hole in the Ground”, will now be remembered as the first mayor of N.O. to be convicted on federal corruption charges. Member reactions:
Job well done, Champ. I would decrease the liquification and blurriness a bit though
Thanks Lucianomorelli, if only he would have smoked some crack, might have got more attention, mabe even a contest like bob ford got. . But I couldn't resist lampooning Ray-Ray, since I was one of those New Orleans tax payers suffering under his extreme lack of leadership during and after Katrina.
After two trials, an appearance on Celebrity Apprentice and a plea for mercy, Rod Blagojevich (Democrat) was sentenced today to 14 years in federal prison, after the former Illinois governor guilty on 18 counts involving the attempted sale of a U.S. Senate seat, illegal shakedowns for campaign contributions and lying to federal agents. Prosecutors asked for 20 years, but since the seat was not yet sold and no cash exchanged hands, Blago "got away" with only 14 years. Selling Senate seats ain't as easy as it seemed...
Interestingly enough, former Illinois governor George Ryan (Republican), predecessor to Blago, was also convicted on corruption charges, landing him in prison for 6.5 years. Ryan gets out of prison in July 2013. One has to wonder if the courts lengthy sentence was meant to send a message for future governors.
Photoshop anything related to Rod Blagojevich getting sentenced and serving time in jail. E.g. show evidence that was used in court, or how Blago will spend his prison days - these are just some ideas.
George Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in jail and lost his license for five years Tuesday for driving under the influence of drugs when he crashed his car into a London photo shop.
A British judge told the wayward star his addiction to marijuana put him and the public at risk.
The former Wham! singer pleaded guilty last month to driving under the influence and possession of cannabis following a July 4 collision between his Range Rover and a Snappy Snaps store in north London.
District Judge John Perkins told the singer he had taken a “dangerous and unpredictable mix” of prescription drugs and marijuana.

Some examples are: George Michael mugshots, photo (and other) evidence used in court, jail strip search, what George Michael will do in jail, how he'll decorate his prison cell, some songs George Michael should remake once he gets out, etc.
Lindsay LOLhan was sentenced to 3 months in jail followed by rehab time, after the judge found out she violated the terms of her probation in 2007 drug case. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the sentence after listening to testimony from employees of a court-mandated alcohol treatment program. Lohan tried to convince the judge she did the best she could by trying to balance work and mandatory alcohol treatment program. Revel said she found Lohan’s apology insincere, comparing it to “somebody who cheats and thinks it isn’t cheating if she doesn’t get caught.’’ Lohan was not immediately taken into custody and will be permitted to surrender on July 20. She will have to wear an ankle alcohol monitor until then.

As we all heard, the "Blade" star Wesley Snipes was sentenced by federal judge to 3 years in prison - maximum conviction time for tax evasion. The decision came as a big surprise for Snipes, who even wrote the government three $5 million checks to convince judge to give him just home detention and community service charges. None of this worked - Wesley is going to do hard time. This case marks a big victory for prosecutors who made the Spines case an example and a threat to all rich people who fail to correctly file their tax return.

Paris Hilton started serving time in Los Angeles County jail. It's interesting that the authorities made an exception and allowed Paris jail wear to be designed by Gucci. However, Paris jail cell is no Hilton.
In this contest you are asked to turn this world into a jail world. Put jail wear on any animals, give striped jail paint job to any clothes, objects or animals, or put anything behind the bars - these are just some ideas. You are welcome to use photos, posters, or paintings as source pictures.
