Keep the BLACK as is, replace GREEN with the link, and replace the RED with the news story title.
Thanksgiving is this Thursday, which means that it's that time of the year again when cooked turkeys and mashed potatoes will be eaten, just like the first settlers did many moons ago. Happy Thanksgiving, to all! Many thanks to Denlig for the themepost.
Photoshop anything connected to Thanksgiving. Some examples are: showing how celebrities and politicians could spend this holiday, give Thanksgiving theme to movies or paintings, etc.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Statistics show that the United States produces about 270 million turkeys a year, 30% of these turkeys are consumed by Americans during Thanksgiving. Turkeys have a sharp 270 degree vision, and are quite "sporty" birds - they run up to 20 miles per hour and fly up to 55 miles per hour. Turkeys are related to pheasants. Benjamin Franklin wanted the national bird to be a turkey, instead of the bald eagle. Many thanks to hobbit90 for the themepost, Human Hunting Season.
To pay tribute to this bird, photoshop what life would be like if turkeys ruled the world.
Some good examples are 'Pecking Order' by the talented Cosmix, Princess Shea Turkey by master SplatShot, and of course A Wise Old Bird by #1 in the FN Hall Of Fame, AZRainman.
It's Freak Show time! Time to get your whips ready and get the freaking circus started! This is a contest to exhibit some of your creative works.
Photoshop and exhibit anything you wish with no "contest restrictions". (standard site rules still apply).
This Thursday will be the 121st birthday of Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte, a Belgian Surrealist artist. He became well known for creating a number of witty and thought-provoking images. Often depicting ordinary objects in an unusual context, his work is known for challenging observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality. In 1926, Magritte produced his first surreal painting, The Lost Jockey, and held his first solo exhibition in Brussels in 1927. Critics heaped abuse on the exhibition. Real fame came to Magritte in 1960 (shortly before his death in 1967) when his paintings influenced pop art and culture.
To celebrate the 121st birthday of Rene Magritte, photoshop any of his paintings. Some examples are: show how he would have created his works in the modern days, what people or objects he would choose, etc. Many thanks to The Late preemiememe for the themepost.
This Tuesday is the International Men's Day (IMD), and is celebrated in over 70 countries on the 19th of November. International Men’s Day seeks to address many different issues surrounding mens mental health. One of the main reasons is to raise awareness for male suicide. Global support for the celebration is broad.
To celebrate International Men's Day at FN, turn any female celebrities/politicians into men. Many thanks to SplatShot for the Themepost.
This Thursday the artistic world will celebrate the 179th birthday of Claude Monet - the founder of Impressionist movement in art. The term "impressionism" is inherited from the title of Monet's painting "Impression, Sunrise".
Photoshop any painting by Claude Monet to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Monet paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days. Many thanks to OTake for the Themepost.
Drinking and hangover can cause temporary double vision, especially for those who drink more than they should. But double vision can be also achieved with Photoshop, and looking at such pictures for a while can cause eyestrain and even headaches, because your eyes will keep trying to focus to get rid of this double vision, but they can't.
To show the effects of double vision, take any celebrities or politicians and double their eyes and mouth at the same time. Do not double a nose as it will ruin the effect which comes from our brains refusing to accept that part of the face (eyes & mouth) is doubled, but part (the rest of the face including nose) is not. Of course you will need to extend a chin and upper part of the face a bit to fit the extra mouth and eyes. Many thanks to Hitspinner for the themepost.
This Wednesday American actor Jeff Bridges will be celebrating his 70th birthday. Bridges' Hollywood career spans for four decades, and we know him for his marvelous roles in such movies as The Big Lebowski, True Grit, Tron, Legacy, Crazy Heart, and others. One of the reasons he gladly accepted the role of "the dude" in The Big Lebowski is that he used to be addicted to marijuana for many years and "brought back his past for this role". Jeff is also an avid wine lover and professional winemaker. He also released two country music albums - Be Here Soon (2000) and Jeff Bridges (2011) - the latter one got quite high (excuse the pun) in the music charts.
To mark the upcoming 70th birthday of Jeff Bridges, photoshop him any way you wish. Many thanks to funkwood for the themepost.
