R.I.P James Garner and Johnny Winter Member reactions:
Good work but I don't understand the connection, other than dying, between the two. Moreover, it seems to me it detracts from honoring either to do so in tandem. Just my 2p. Good luck.
Both men.. cool as he11, both mavericks, both incredible at the top of their game, both iconic Americans, both died within a few days apart, both on my favorite list, both fit the atmosphere of this chop perfectly and most importantly, I wanted to create an imagined world where these two are good friends, undivided by age or class. Maybe where they are it is possible now. Thanks for the comments Paco, Oldman and Dman
I have to agree with pacovilla. Thank you for alerting about Johnny's death. I haven't heard about it before for entry. Two men who I adored for years have left this world. Maybe Jimmy could give Johnny a ride in his Firebird along Highway 61.
Curious, two of you now. I must admit the viewpoint is a bit odd to me. I wonder if either of them would object or be honored to share the same light. Thank you for your comment.
Superlative and impressive job. No reason they can't stay togather.
It's a fine chop, though I don't think they ever connected to each other that well to be associated here, it's a bit of a stretch. They did die 3 days apart indeed though. On the same day (Thursday, July 17) Johnny Winder died, actress Elaine Stritch (89) passed away and jazz trumpeter Lionel Ferbos (103) died on the same Saturday (July 19) James Garner did.
Hmmmm don't know any of those other names, might know the faces though. Boy, this is the last time I ever give you guys a two for one deal. Hahahaha Thanks for the comments Newsey and Luciano Have a good one
6 degrees... They are connected somehow I bet. Congrats on top 5 Hitspinner
Excellent picture, Hitspinner. Looks like we invited to play, but impossible to win. Too late.
The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror V, (season 6) had a great omage to Stephen King's "The Shining". I decided to recreate one of the more famous scenes from that film, starring Homer and Marge in the lead roles. Both characters were maticulously constructed using skin grafts from several actors to get the skin to flow convincingly in the shape of the cartoon faces. Please take a moment and view full and let me know what you think. Thanks. Member reactions:
A gem like this was hard to expect. a 3-D real life cartoon recreation of the famous poster is a real challenge. I salute you for the efforts and a great show for the rest of the FNers and site visitors.
Simpson's characters are always in 2d and now you have made them into next dimension awesome creativity and good present for the Genius well done
Excellent Simpsons caricature. Maybe some shadow from axe .
Luciano, I don't think there should be a shadow from the axe, as it is not near enough the door or the arm and clothes. The knife in Marge's hand needs and does have a shadow as it is located right on her dress.
. Great chop and a well deserved win. Congrats.
Thanks everybody.. I'll post a work in progress once it's done uploading to youtube… took forever…hundres of layers.
Congrats. All pictures in the contest are good, but this one is the best.
Congrats on the gold, HOAT. Waiting for your WIP video - they always tell a story about each of your chops.
Here's the work in progress video: link
The WIP work is amazing. , you used Bruce Willis parts for Homer. Loved how you used pool balls for eyes too
RE: lucianomorelli "Excellent Simpsons caricature. Maybe some shadow from axe ." RE: NewsMaster "Luciano, I don't think there should be a shadow from the axe, as it is not near enough the door or the arm and clothes. The knife in Marge's hand needs and does have a shadow as it is located right on her dress." Guys, I agree there might be some argument for a shadow there. But I actually researched the light sources from the movie. There is a lamp to camera right, on the OTHER side of the door he's trying to break through. which is why his shirt is mostly dark as he starts cutting off the light source. There's also a tiny rim light on the back of Homer's head since he has managed to get a little further through the door hole than Jack did. I scrubbed the scene back and forth trying to figure out where the shadows were falling in the actual footage so I wouldn't be too far off. It's tricky because you cannot see as wide an angle as what I am portraying in my scene. Everything is tight shots. And Jack and Shelly aren't really onscreen together in this sequence, so I made an amalgamation of about 4-5 different shots and camera angles to capture the mood. Thanks for your comments, I'm always second guessing myself on light sources.
American actor and womanizer Johnny Depp is turning the big 5-0 this coming Sunday. As a teenager, Depp did not dream about acting, but wanted to be a rock star. He dropped out of school at the age of 15 to perform with his band. When he turned to acting and became mega-popular in the 90s, Johnny says he could not cope with all the fame and attention, so started drinking heavily and even tried to create his own wine. On several occasions Depp said he plans to retire from acting when he turns 50 because his "sex appeal will last no longer". We hope he does not fulfill his promise and wish Johnny a Happy 50th Birthday!
To mark the upcoming 50th birthday of Johnny Depp, photoshop him any way you wish.
American actor Johnny Depp celebrates his 45th birthday today. While Depp never won any Academy Awards, he entertained us with many characters - from Edward Scissorhands to Sweeney Todd and Captain Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga.
Depp currently lives in France with his girlfriend, French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis. Happy 45th birthday, Johnny!
To mark 45th birthday of Johnny Depp, photoshop him any way you wish. Some examples are - merge Depp with other celebrities or politicians, show what alternative careers he might have chosen, what other movies he could have played in, immortalize Depp in famous paintings, make him endorse commercial products, etc. These are just some ideas.
Johnny Carson belongs to the ages, but his image will surely be used in many ways. Photoshop how Johnny Carson's image will be used in the future. Feel free to use it to sell a product, or in movies, TV, or any other ways you can think of that will use his likeness.
