You guys are killin’ me! These are hysterical. I’m gone for a day and you’re going bonkers in the ol’ sandbox.
It’s like everbody got into the catnip at once. It’s wondeful!
You’ve captured how he looked one night or maybe it was the morning after the two of us drank way-too-many margaritas. Doing him "in oils" was right on, cuz we got pretty "oiled" that time. (Actually soon after this relatively current picture was taken, he got a lot of his hair cut, trying to do the “spikey (hair)do” look.) An inspired version. He’ll like this one for sure.
How did you know one of his favorite sayings years ago when Flip Wilson was the rage was, “The Devil made me Do It!”? He frequently claimed to be able to "swat flies" with his tongue. This just proves he was right -- well maybe more like "torch flies." What a riot.
Thank you, Lisa…
For helping balance out the collection. It’s a wonderful companion to “The Hippie” version. The theme on #2 is perfect, since he actually attended the original “Woodstock.” One of his favorite songs was (and still is) Steppenwolf's rendition of "Born to be Wiiiiiii-iiii-lll-d." Unfortunately he still plays it on his RECORD PLAYER (no kidding). Very glad to see your work again.
Doug! Doug! Doug!
“What every little boy wants for his birthday?” That would be a glass of apple juice in one hand and a photo-op with, Hef, right? I'm sure he had at least a damp dreams about this senerio (less Hugh, most likely). Now there's proof. Ingenius.
Yours is reminiscennt of how he looked at night in those crowded disco lounges, looking for love in obviously (now) all the wrong places. A very stylish rendition, indeed!
EXCELLENT sunglasses, earring and leather jacket, Sanda!
This is funny. When he graduated from high school his dad got him a Honda-90 motorbike. It wasn’t even a motorCYCLE… barely got up to 30 miles per hour! I’m sure he WISHED he could have looked this cool. Splendid job.
Mike…this is the ultimate compliment.
Being “carved” in stone could hardly be more appropriate. Among some of his workmates these days (all of whom are 20-30 years younger than he is), he’s referred to as “Ol’ Granite A$$.” A very unique and clever rendition.
For the record I'll never ever ADMIT to having worn a leisure suit. At this point I'm gonna put my plans for submitting a picture of the two us to this crew for creative interpretation on permanent hold! LOL. Can you blame me?
I can tell you now that before I posted this mini-challenge I gave fleeting thought of posting a picture of myself. I think…no, I KNOW -- that I’m glad you’re experimenting on my buddy first. TG my birthday isn’t until February!
This just keeps getting better and better -- and just think I can take entries until August 3. The prospects are mind boggling.
I can't thank you enough.
Here's a desaturated original on which Colored Pencil was applied (paper brightness about 40), topped with a multiplied version of itself, topped with a copy of the color BG layer set to Color, merge 'em all together and run PE using Vikki's custom 0Wetter and Voilat! Kind of a colored chalk effect.
Yes there have been some great entries for this so far. Is it just me or does the Hippy have a little of Gene Hackman in him?
Tom, that devil one is great, although it scares the pants off me
Ok, better late than never... Here's my entry. Just a bit of a water color effect and a PhotoImpact lighting effect for good measure.
Birthday boy goes south!
Thanks for the fun challenge, Danny!
I decided your friend should go south of the border for a birthday fiesta, so I gave him a sombrero and a serape that I made by liquefying Photoshop 7.0's built-in "blanket" pattern under "styles" (which also created the background along with the "chalk&charcoal" filter for roughness).
He looked way too "hometown Kansas City" though, so I used "distort-pinch" to exaggerate his smile (gotta be happy at your fiesta de cumpleanos, after all!) and to crinkle up his eyes for a caricature look. Then I used brightness and contrast to deepen and accent those sexy wrinkles, while brightening up his teeth and giving him a sunbaked complexion. Finally I clone-stamped his ponytail to give him macho sideburns. Esta un hombre muy guapo, no?
