Keanu Reeves by Michael Sweerts, 1656. Member reactions:
All additions need the texture from the painting to make it blend in.
Np. Nice edit Did you darken his face or did I just not notice. Anyways, his face should match his hands & chest more.
Awesome blending of all elements except the face - it needs color brightness and contrast adjustments to match the hands. You may try another source for the face too, as this one had a hard light and shadows to start with, while the hands show soft light and low contrast
Meybe could be easier to change the hands....
Nice one Wanderer. Hey, I learned a neat trick on aging down a chop, recently. Grab a "cracking paint" source picture. Convert it to black and white. Using the magic wand, select the dark and remove. That will leave you the white highlight. Save that as a layer. Then create a new layer of that highlight and convert it to black. now take both of those layers and off-set each one left and right so that you have shadow on one side and highlight on the other. Then merge both into a new layer and that will give you the crackle layer that you can place and adjust over your manipulated areas. Just erase as necessary and adjust opacity. It's pretty cool for a quick illusion. Hope that is of some use....Cheers
Thank you, everybody. Thank you, Hitspinner. I will try your procedure for next contest. Thank you again. W
Best wishes Michael, the whole world is praying for you. Member reactions:
Good chop.. in showing the brusies and the bumps on his face especially the head bump with a crack well composed
There is a guardian angel to protect him .
Broken bones and cut on face.. Heal Schumacher, real bad face. Get well soon
Yes there is. Thank you for noticing and commenting. And thank you Rajesh
Thanks Pat, Bob, Armatien, Doc, NM, Eric, Rajesh and
This is a great caricature... and it's funny.. Congrats on Silver Hits.
Hey Hits... This chop was the favorite for me... but i did not remember that I have given 6 to it... There is no way for me to re-verify
Rajesh. No worries. You did not give it a six, I know. It's not important anyway, I was just surprised to see I got one,,, actually two. Sometimes chops just don't appeal. I have a feeling it was a mistake. If you don't look close and see the guardian angle in ice, one might think the chop is in poor taste. Do-Do happens Besides, I don't mind giving one up if I am soundly beat, GarRobMil was long overdue and entered a great one. Cheers
F1 legendary racer Michael Schumacher is in the induced coma after a terrible skiing accident in the resort of Meribel. Schumacher's friends and fans gathered around the hospital in Grenoble on his 45's birthday past Sunday and projected the message on the hospital wall "Schumi, stay strong, keep fighting".
As Michael's condition remains critical, we are running this contest in his support.
To wish Michael Schumacher a fast recovery, photoshop him any way you wish.
On March 14 Academy award winner Michael Caine celebrates his 80th birthday. Having starred in over 100 movies, Caine is one of England's most famous actors and one of the very few actors in history to have won all of the following awards: Academy Award (twice), Golden Globe (thrice), BAFTA Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award. Many British viewers remember Caine for his roles as agent "Harry Palmer" (movies "Billion Dollar Brain", "Funeral in Berlin", etc.). Harry Palmer was created as a middle-class analogy of James Bond - a simple guy who went from zero to hero.

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.
Photoshop anything related to George Michael getting sentenced and serving time in jail. 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.
This Friday at their joint birthday, Catherine Zeta-Jones turned 40 and Michael Douglas became a senior citizen at 65. As the couple were leaving their apartment block for the birthday celebration, they gave short remarks to the paparazzi. Michael said, "I feel great at 65." Catherine added, "I feel much younger than I am. When you are 10 or 20, 40 looks really old. When I was nearing 30 that seemed like a major milestone."
The star couple married on November 18, 2000. They have 2 children.
To mark the birthday of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, photoshop them any way you wish (together or separately).
This Saturday, August 29, the "King of Pop" - Michael Jackson will celebrate his 50th birthday. Jackson entered show business at the age of 5 and became a star when most kids of his age could not even tie their shoelaces. He's been in show business for 45 years by now, and became one of the biggest stars in music history. Sadly, Jacko's scandals and lawsuits made more buzz in the last years than his music genius. At the age of 50, he's becoming pretty quiet, hardly releasing anything new. His Neverland Ranch was sold for debts in May this year. For Jackson's 50th birthday, Sony is releasing the double compilation album called "King of Pop", made of his old hits. It's too early to retire, Michael, look at the "Stones" or Madonna - you can still "thrill" the world!
To celebrate Jacko's 50th birthday, photoshop him any way you wish. Some examples are: show Michael in movies and paintings, photoshop magazine covers with Jacko's new scandals, show how his face may look like after more plastic surgeries, merge Jackson with other celebrities, show what alternative professions he could have chosen, how he'll look in his older years, etc. Here's a good example.
