I rated this high but it has been so dramatically altered since voting began I have a different opinion of it now. I am not a politically correct type but the Obama image has ethnic implications which, while surely not the artist's intention, may be deemed offensive. (An African Obama wearing "bling"). That and the random additions detract from the original, IMO better, version. NewsMaster, as another noted last week, this is a problem. It's great to give us a bit of time to clean up artifacts and correct errors, but what can only be described as wholesale changes is akin to changing a ballot selection after the polls close. It's not an issue of fairness to others as much as it is unfair to voters. Just my 2p. PS-Being random and hyper-busy, this is undoubtedly gold. Congrats Sr. E
Excellent Caricature... Obama with a freaky jewels of Obama with a note of I love america is really awesome good one
pacovilla, I agree about "drastic changes". The edits after the voting starts are meant for technical and small changes. We'll have to restrict the editing ability of those accounts that do such big swaps through the editing period. Hidden author - you are welcome to make any big changes if you wish but please do so before the voting starts. and again, Obama does not have to be in every chop.
Excellent chop... I am not sure of what the history was on the changes you had to make but just be clear about what you want to say and who in the chop you pick to help you say it... before you start. The message/statement is more important than the technical expertise of delivery. That is soooooooo vital to follow when you do commercial work for hire. Congrats on the white gold young man.

This is cool. Would be even cooler if the body suit was as high res as the rest of it.
ha ha ha Creep.. Nose could be implanted like this Flying fish and Eyed glasses...whola full of extreme ideas
Creative work, but the low resolution blurry costume part really takes away from it. I see you tried some filters and did some brush work to make it better, but there's only so much you can do with the low res sources. The costume looks painted now, while the rest of the composition is made with photo sources
Anyway a great chop for the idea and the execution.
Congrats on the win, Hits. If I am not mistaken this is the second time you used this suit source, and my best guess is that it originally (before you touched it with filters and brushes) was either a photo of some toy statuette or it's a still shot from a 3-D game.
We simply do the best we can with the source. I searched hi and low for a larger version of this cool toy but found zilch. Not being one that invests a couple of hours looking for the right dressing I said to meself, "Paint over it and use it anyway, they're a sharp enough lot to see the challenge." turns out I was right. You guy appreciated the effort so all is well that ends well. I was just a little overly ambitious given the deadline for entry. With a few more hours I could have hammered out all the dents but like so often... just ran out of time. Anyway, thanks for the high votes, it was above an beyond what I expected ... OOO NM, Doc, Luciano, eric, Ilovelayers, balodiya and 420
I made a hard copy print. I got some paint and put it on the little feet of a roach and let him walk on the face. Topaz clean is another way to get the effect hehe Thank you Elegary and 420
Haha..very nice effect and caricature.I'm like it.
Nice thought and good utilization of brain...
I wish the ears, nose and mouth were as high resolution as the rest of the chop.
Great chop full of meanings......I like Obama's head, the internal look like a watermelon.
Thank you, Doc, 420, Luciano, Elegary, Sulli, eric, B3X and Joan
Congrats on the gold, Tim. I agree with Paul - would be nice to have the ears, nose and mouth in the same sharpness - they appear blurred and even pixelated at places (e.g. tooth edges). Overall a great work though
Time magazine has named Pope Francis "Person of the Year", saying the Catholic Church leader has dramatically changed the perception of the 2000 year old institution in a very short time. This honor puts Pope Francis in the company of U.S. President Barack Obama, Pope John Paul II and Russian President Vladimir Putin, among other prominent world figures Time magazine has picked in past years.
Choose your own (worthy or unworthy) person and Photoshop him/her on the TIME magazine cover as 2013 Person of the Year. Real or fictional celebrities (from movies, cartoons, paintings) are all welcome.
The editors of Time magazine will officially name the magazine's "Person of the Year" on December 19 on the Today show. However, before the magazine's pick is announced, Time ran a poll among its readers and found that the majority (over 5 million voters) chose Kim Jong Un as "Person of the Year". While the readers' choice is not an official magazine's pick, it does speak volumes when they pick a dictator who did not make a public appearance till 2010, and hardly has any accomplishments under his belt except "inheriting" the country from his father, and trying hard to rule like him. The poll was conducted online, so anyone in the world with an internet access could cast their vote. One thing is for sure - over 5 million of Time readers think that "dictators are cool". Perhaps it's "time" for the magazine to rethink why their content attracts such audience.
Choose your own (worthy or unworthy) person and Photoshop him/her on the TIME magazine cover as 2012 Person of the Year. Real or fictional celebrities (from movies, cartoons, paintings) are all welcome.
March 8 at 2am the USA and Canada sprung forward by an hour and stepped into Daylight Saving Time. The EU and Russia will begin Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 29. Although it's not exactly time travel, adjusting the clocks by an hour forward does have a direct effect on people - they lose an hour of sleep and feel grouchy all day.
Photoshop time travel of Hollywood actors by putting the actors from the older movies into more recent movies, OR putting the actors from the recent movies into old movies. TV shows are acceptable too. Some examples are: making Steve McQueen act in "Harry Potter", or making Brad Pitt act in "Some Like it Hot", etc. Either movie stills or movie posters are acceptable.
Boxofficemojo has published the toplist of
time travel movies based on their gross ticket receipts. Surprisingly no movies could beat the 1985 box office success of the first installment of "Back to the Future" - not even the Terminator or Star Trek flicks. Ironically, if you want a large box office for time travel movies, you have to go back in time to the 80s.
Photoshop time travel by placing any famous person out of his time. Think of the examples like what Einstein could be doing nowadays, or what movies Scarlett Johansson would star in 1950s.
