Funny, Political and Environmental Designs in Round One

Posted Wednesday, 21 November 2007 in Design, Entertainment, Inspiration, Photoshop
After closing entries for Round 1 in our Photoshop contest, I think it is safe to say that it’s been the most successful first round ever with 600 entries. Here are a few highlights among the huge number of incredibly creative images.

The source photos used in Round 1:

Toad source image banana source image manequin source image Fighter jet source image Pollution source image Mr Bush

Surely we did expect quite a bit of political takes and flaming in our first round of the Photoshop contest when we included George W Bush among the source images – we even got hate-mail for it.

But there aren't only political Photoshop-jobs with Mr Bush being mocked or ridiculed – many contestants that chose to make non-political statements have done so extremely successfully. Just have a look at this:

Definetely some nice pieces here, yet I believe my piece (i turned bush into a portrait statue) is better than a couple of the above images by far (hope by scottie j is pretty lame). Kind of dissapointed i wasn't listed above.. but whatever. Call me a whiner or whatever you like; i'm just being real. Good luck to the winner.
