Photoshop Blasts From the Past: Banana Bombs, FrogZilla and The Killer Utensils

Posted Tuesday, 4 November 2008 by Lars Hasvoll Bakke in Design, Photoshop
As the first in a series, we take a look at some of the deliciously stylish, funny and fruity entries from the two previous Crestock Photoshop Contests.
From the heaps of entries we've got stored from the first round of the 2006 and 2007 Photoshop contests here at Crestock, we put together a smallcollection of interesting entries. We divided them into three categories, the good, the weird and the funny, though many, if not mostof the entries in the two former categories are funny in their own ways, or even downright hilarious.

With a wide array of themes and styles (or lack thereof), contest followers and potential entrants to this year's contest will hopefully be inspired and amused by this collection.

First, have a look at the source images provided for the two rounds, which all the entries beneath where based on.
