Insect Animals
19 entries - contest ended 6/6/2019

In humans and other animals, body cells get oxygen through blood cells that capture oxygen from the lungs. Insects' blood (hemolymph) does not carry oxygen, and body cells get it directly from the air that is supplied by the complex system of little hollow tubes (called tracheas or windpipes). Since insects don't have lungs but only "passive" tracheas, such primitive "ventilation" system can only stay effective as the length of tracheas is short enough, otherwise the "deep down" cells will not be ventilated enough and will die of oxygen starvation. That is why those scary old Japanese movies with huge insects (gigantic moth shooting thunderbolts from its eyes, etc) fighting giant animals are physically impossible in real life.
If insects had some features of animals (lungs, etc.) huge size would not a a problem for them. Combine any insect(s) with any animal(s) any way you wish. (For the sake of this contest we'll consider spiders as insects, though formally belong to separate order Araneae). Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.

Symmetric Celebrities
34 entries - contest ended 6/3/2019

Most people are born with perfect face symmetry. However, as we age, our asymmetric emotions and habits change our faces with more and more asymmetry. For example, right-handed people tend to use their right face muscles more. Did you ever see a right-handed smoker smoking a cigarette on the left side of his mouth? Despite such developed "imperfections", asymmetric beauty is more appealing and looks more natural to the eye.
Show what celebrity faces would look if they were perfectly symmetric. To have more interesting results, you are encouraged to use slightly tilted faces to project tilted symmetry too. (Please don't use multiple faces of the same celebrity in the same entry.) Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to SplatShot for the themepost.
