Columbus Arrested by the Border Patrol. .No. Dos Espana Gringo. Member reactions:
Quality work, but not sure about the face choice - it's definitely too far from the image people have in mind. Columbus had blond hair (which turned all white by the time he turned 30) - he was never depicted with a beard either. Linky. The source you used is associated with a famous human sculpture by Ron Mueck, and looks more like Saddam Hussein than Columbus.
Would the real Chris Columbus please raise your hand Honestly, I wasn't going for any kind of accuracy, just the humor. It doesn't matter to me what he looked like. I don't think anyone really knows. He doesn't look like Gerard Depardieu either but they still cast Gerard in a movie. There are tons of depictions, all different and this is my goofy version. It is just a chop, not an historical document hehe
Newsy considerations apart, looks an awesome chop indeed
Point taken, I did not know there are so many depictions of Columbus. Most people including myself are probably familiar with 2-3 sources of Columbus portraits, where he's shown without a beard. I have also read that he was a blond fella that turned completely white by 30. Gerard looked blond so that was enough of the similarity
We had a few different history books when I was a kid learning American history and none of them really agreed. Not even where he landed or who Actually found the mainland continent. Accounts claimed Americus Vespuci was the actual guy. So I sort of left it at that though now we know it was far earlier Polynesian or Nordic explorers that get the finder's fee. I did read somewhere that Columbus was originally from the north of Italy around Genoa. Not surprising to hear he might have been fair haired as there was a lot of Swiss mix in the Northern Italians. Fair hair is very common. Too bad they didn't have cameras . Thanks for the comments peeps
Thanks Newsey, Doc, Wanderer and Bob. Where is everybody else lately.
And as a side note, America's immigration policies have gotten absolutely no better. GGGGG-Grandpa would have been way better off to make them the turky than to offer them one.
We are proud to introduce the newly formed elite army division code name "Rat Patrol"...their job is to what no one else wants to do, find landmines without getting blown to bits. We are sure that they will do a bang up job. Member reactions:
He is using the force...or he has one of those straps that wrap around the back of his hand to free up his fingers. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
Good concept of Rat Patrol used here, the rat is looking great holding a grenade, and see the facial expression seems to be very happy of a job done successfully Nice Vehicle used behind its perfectly matches the image
This is very well done. If you lightened up the bottom third and placed corresponding shadows from the truck and rat, it would look even better.
