It looks fine to me. Except I don't have a beard. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:46, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
Looks good to me. But maybe you could convert it over to a PNG? Also, link your sources. --Tophat headless 17:02, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

This Classical statuary, discovered in ruins long since destroyed to make way for a strip mall, florist, and superstore hair-and-nail salon, reenact the hierarchy of the culture's sacred rites, which were commonly held by their men to be an allegory for entire fated course of man's life.

Impressive phallus, erm, I mean... picture. But if your aim is to wander about thrusting it about at passerby for their en masse adoration, you are sorely, spongily mistaken: if you conduct a probing Tineye search, your idol would present itself to be unoriginal. I expect that the submitter is already aware of this fascinating deception, and merely wanted to "flaunt what he's got". If this is the case as it stands hanging out - the throbbing, pulsating, heavily vascularised truth, as it were - there are other places for that. We could flog the offender before the mast, but then again he's already been beaten by centuries.

Rather than making fun of a serious medical condition, however, he could instead do something original, just as I have made a pathetic, unfunny - and ultimately, technically flaccid - attempt to do here, warts and all. --MEEPsigKUN VFH POTM VFP(IMAGESTALK) 00:47, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

I don't get it. That said, the plaque is shiny wrong - look at the door handles. Relative to them, it's backwards and too bright, so if you flip the background and tone it down to match the image, it should help. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 20:02, 22 May 2011
As for not getting it, have you ever herd of jersey shore, the TV show? The man in the room always called his abs "a situation", therefore, he adopted the nickname "The situation". As for the other things, I'll see what I can do. --Party hat 22:51, May 22, 2011 (UTC)
Nope! But that... ah, okay. Also, another thing - there's a reflection on one pane but not the other - if you put the reflection over the guy, it could look pretty cool, but you could also just remove it from the other one. Either way, consistency would help. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:59, 22 May 2011
Okay, I'll try to do the window pane thing. But I just got finished fixing the other stuff. How's it look? --Party hat 23:20, May 22, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! Anything else? --Tophat headless 01:11, May 25, 2011 (UTC)
Maybe blur the sign? And possibly make it darker? I mean, what you did helped, but it still really stands out. Also, someone else's input on this whole thing would probably be of more use now. *glares around* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:05, 25 May 2011

Okay, so I converted it to a png, BUT IT WON'T FUCKING UPDATE CORRECTLY! So it might not look that great. Anyway, so, Modus, what do you think of the image? --Tophat headless 16:04, May 25, 2011 (UTC)
The left side of the dude (image left, not his left) has a thick black line that probably shouldn't be there, unless he actually has a border on one side. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:29, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

The chopsticks are awfully pixelly. The edge of the bowl, too. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:10, May 17, 2011 (UTC)
Perspective of the... er, broth is a little off, too - since we're viewing from an angle, the apparent distance between the edge of the liquid and the rim of the bowl should be a fair bit less on the near side. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:22, 17 May 2011
Also, it's painfully obvious that the chopsticks are chopped to look distorted as they go into the water. You might want to do something about that... --Tophat headless 00:43, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
Aye, and again, consider the perspective - are they really going into the liquid directly at the edge of the container? If the edge of the liquid on the chopsticks is further down the chopsticks, that would also make them look more realistic. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:11, 18 May 2011
Actually, I was just looking at the image, and I would go one step further and say that it's actually bleedingly obvious that the chopsticks were chopped into the photo. What I mean is, the chopsticks look two dimensional, while the rest of the image looks three dimensional. --Tophat headless 04:34, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
If you tried to pass it off as an ancient painting (or basically any form of non-photographic art) then it'd be a hell of a lot more convincing, methinks. Because I can't see this picture becoming convincing looking as a photo.~~ Sir Ljlego, GUN  [talk] 04:44, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
Wait. Those are chopsticks? They don't look like chopsticks. Maybe a spoon next to the soup bowl would be more appropriate. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 08:15, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, what a great idea, Zombiebaron! A spoon, or maybe a fork? Either way, do chop sticks really make sense for whole cats? --Tophat headless 14:23, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
For the love of god...why can't I get this much attention and critique and feedback with my articles!?!?!!?!? Okay...thanks a lot for the comments so far (more are welcome). I was very aware of the flaws...I lost the original versions so I can only begin with the first uploaded version. I was considering making the water muddier (to look like broth). The chopsticks I thought gave a cool effect with the distortion in the water, and I did consider a spoon. If three people have a problem with the chopsticks then Ill take them out and add a spoon and a couple side dish bowls, Korean style. Ill depixilate the edges of the bowl, make the water level symetrical, then apply the filter to the water, readd the laurier, chives, oil bubbles and then readd the shadows. I wont go so far as to turn it into a painting. Thanks again guy for all the ideas. Now...ehm...go give me ideas for Democracy is not permanent, Mahjong, Stupid Cats and Cool beans!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?? --ShabiDOO 17:28, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
But reading and thinking about articles takes more effort than just looking at an image... and people are so lazy. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:34, 18 May 2011
The liquid is awfully watery. I'd want some tomato or something with my cat soup... (catsup?) Could there be a few more bits of chopped veg and a cheeky liquid effect? And a tablecloth background would really add to the impact. If it's to my satisfaction I shall tip 25%, waiter. -- Hindleyite Converse 18:51, May 20, 2011 (UTC)

Can you make the ipad look like it's painted? (Also, 2,000 × 2,708 is unnecessarily big. It's 2 1/2 meg, and bigger than monitors) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:11, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Er... I actually did make it look like it was painted; you can't really tell, but I did. It was either make it look too painted, or make it look... Not so much painted; I chose the latter. But I'll see what I can do. --Tophat headless 04:15, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I agree with Modus. At full-size the iPad totally doesn't fit in with the rest of the image. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 04:20, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
You're right... --Tophat headless 04:50, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I made it smaller. Now I'm working on making the Ipad look more painted. --Tophat headless 13:53, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
I hope it looks better now. What we did was we did a free select of a section the exact same shape as the Ipad, and we copied it. Then we pasted that over the Ipad but we switched the blend mode of the layer to lumosity, so it wouldn't effect the colors. Then we lowered that layer's opacity so it would be faint. We did this in the hopes that we could get the right texture. What do you guys think? --Tophat headless 02:09, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
Hey! We didn't come here for your life story! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:27, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

I still don't think it looks right. I do, however, think that it's a minor quibble. So minor, in fact, that only a bastard would've brought it up in the first place. I think you can see where I'm going here. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:36, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
Do you think it needs to look more painted? --Tophat headless 03:41, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
I think it would look better more brush strokey, yes. Alternately, make Moses more iPad. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:52, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
I hate to keep saying this, but we did that too. We tried to make him look more life like, and the Ipad look more painted. We wanted it do be somewhere in the middle. Anyway, gotta get off now. Bye! --Tophat headless 03:58, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
Actually I tried to do a quick fix before getting off; I added a canvas texture. Does that help or just make it worse? --Tophat headless 04:05, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
The iPad is very crisp and shiny, the guy not so much. You've toned it down, but perhaps even more? Add some actual brush strokes, perhaps - make it less straight and even. The canvas could be good as it helps tie the entire thing together, but it really shouldn't need that, either, you know? Meh, worry about the strokes first; that'd be a final effect. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:40, 29 March 2011
Okay, we added brush strokes. Is it better now? --Tophat headless 02:41, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it's the fonts. Generally, if you can't match the additional type to the original exactly, it's good to mask out the original text and do both the new and original in one typeface. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:13, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Get used to things "not looking quite right". Alignment is one of those things that will rarely match up perfectly with found imaging. In this case, it's pretty close. Closer than your discomfitingly lopsided eyebrows, but that can't be helped here. That's between you and your forehead. But I digress. It's the lichen that stick out. Or, in this case, don't.

I agree with Modus. The rose-shot-with-bullet really doesn't do it for me and I don't really understand why it's upside down. Skulls are a universal symbol of death. Perhaps a cattle skull, those are cool. Or maybe something dead. With maggots and flies on it. Because if this were a real show it would primarily be about dead animals I assume.

Too many people. Try less. I hope that makes sense. It just looks cluttered for a campaign poster. That they're out-of scale (with yokel being both bigger and farther away than beerdouche) and use a mix of formats (B&W and colour) doesn't help. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:46, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
As Modus said, the people are too cluttered and random, the white trash chaps don't really fit in and poor Edward is way too dark especially in front of the Union Jack. I would pick one or two of the major extremists and look for images of them that have a 'campaign poster vibe' and which look good together.

The Tragic Lumberjack Drownings of Ought Nine

Please Help this Picture
Lumberjack Drownings

The Tragic Lumberjack Drownings of Ought Nine, when hundreds of lumberjacks driven mad by "the call of normal life" threw themselves in the frigid Lake Superior, were a devastating blow to Canada's economy, prompting the Canadian government to begin enforcing rations of yule logs, beer, bear traps, cheaply-made moose heads and maple syrup in order to make up the deficit.

The water is blue and blurry, yet the lumberjacks are red and not. Plus they're standing up underwater, which is just silly. And they're identical triplets, which I'm pretty sure doesn't happen. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:54, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

I was there, man, and they looked like they were underwater. Which they were. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:25, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
I'm kind of wary of using blur, actually. Is there a different tool you would suggest using to achieve that rarefied "underwater" look I'm so desperately craving? Necropaxx (T) {~} Tuesday, 06:10, Oct 27 2009
Photoshop might have an effect of some sort that simulates it. Alternately, use the water that's "behind" the lumberjacks, paste it as a layer "in front" of them, then fiddle with it. Sorry if I got too technical there. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:46, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Will do tomorrow (it's 1 am here). Thanks MO. Necropaxx (T) {~} Tuesday, 06:50, Oct 27 2009
OK, I blurred the outer edges of the lumberjacks. Is that what you were talking about? I also think the color contrast between the lumberjacks and the water is off a bit. How would I fix that? Necropaxx (T) {~} Tuesday, 23:35, Oct 27 2009
Take the water behind them, copy it as a new layer and put it in front of them. Then play with that layers transparency, or mess with the lumberjacks' colour balance, or put a layer in front of them, make it blue, then play with its transparency.
And the lumberjacks need to be blurry or distorted (with each on being a little moreso than the "closer" to you). They look like they're just sitting on top, rather than in, the water. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:19, October 28, 2009 (UTC)
Alright, I transparentized (or transparentised, really, I don't care) the lumberjacks, used the "wave" option in the "Distort" menu (I'm using PSE 2) to "wobble" them, and used the burn tool to darken the lumberjacks some more.

Well MO, I made this for my newest article that I might as well plug now and I'm wondering if you think 'tis funny enough for VFP. Thanks. Necropaxx (T) {~} 05:43, Sep 7

He needs to cast a shadow on the speakers (and the bagpipes need to cast a shadow on him. Try duplicating the pipes, lean them over a bit, then make that the base for the shadow, if that makes any sense at all), play with the brightness/contrast of the speakers to match the rest of the pic (they're a bit bright), the kilt is too obviously mirrored (real things rarely end up exactly the same on both sides. See how one of your balls is bigger than the other? Everyone else noticed, but they were too polite to say anything, so the sad duty fell to me), he doesn't actually appear to be playing the bagpipes (one arm squeezes the bag while the other holds the note-thingy, right? So, perhaps a pic of someone playing a guitar would work better), and I don't give nods as to the odds on VFP (because I have no idea what other people will like. This is because they're all stupid and they smell and I hate them! Ooo! I hate them so much!) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:44, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
I can't do all that much because I forgot to save it as a .PSD (stupid Necropaxx! Stupid stupid sputid!) but I lowered the contrast on the speakers to -20 and tried adding some bagpipe shadow. I don't know what you mean by add some shadow to the speakers (they're black anyway, so what's the difference?). I can't do anything really about the kilt. Anyway, how do you feel about the concept/joke thing? Zany enough? Necropaxx (T) {~} 07:07, Sep 7
So you brought a pic to reefer desk that you can't really change? Have you gone mad?
The not-black part of the speakers can have his shadow. See on the left how his shadow gets to the speaker then just stops?

Yes. The bagpipe is still too bright (see how its tartan pattern looks faded compared to the kilt, and the dark parts of its drones aren't nearly as dark as the dark bits of the rest of the pic?) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:43, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
The bagpipe or the kilt is too bright? Which one, 'cause to me it looks as though the kilt is brighter. Necropaxx (T) {~} 19:48, Sep 7
The colours on the kilt are richer, but the brightness on his bag (*giggle*) is, um, brighter. That's what I meant by "faded". Darkening the entire bagpipe would've cleared that up. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:11, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

At the top of the pipes there are some pieces that used to be white but are transparent now. That wire that's coming from the speaker on the right looks, and obviously is, drawn on. I don't think you need it. The part of the kilt between the legs looks weird. I can see you did some special effects with it, but the result is that this red and yellow line at the bottom appears to disappear in some invisible dimension.

At first I thought it was cheese. Hmm, I have the mental image of potatoes being all dark and dusty with spots and bits sprouting out - maybe make the domes a bit less geometrically correct by using the top half of some really out of shape unpeeled potatoes. Also, try having some full potatoes skewered on top of the spires for extra potatoeyness. Alternative: make the turrets crinkle cut crisps! Just a few suggestions, it's coming along pretty nicely. -- Hindleyite Converse 21:25, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, you might consider changing the whole building into brownish yellowish colors. If you want to make the potatoishness more obvious, you could change the dome to more accurately show the image of an authentic potato. You don't have to limit yourself to the boundaries of the real building, for instance the dome could reach higher and be slightly irregular.

Works? -- sannse@fandom (talk) 19:21, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

lahlz @ "white at last". Jacko's got an uneven grayish halo around him, though, especially 'round the face area. The black could use a bit of touchup too, there's like bits of something else there, something mysterious and purple. Also, the bottom of the face doesn't blend quite as well as the top. The light comes from below Jacko (as best I can tell; I guess light properties work differently on ghosts) so I think the top-right of his face needs a little more gray. In general... I think it needs a bit of touchup around boundaries, both light boundaries and the boundaries between the ghost itself and the black background.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 19:42 Jun 28, 2009
Thanks Dr S. With your comments and those on IRC, I've given him a whole new face, the possibly looks more like him. (And tidyed up a bit) -- sannse@fandom (talk) 10:25, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
This face is definitely much better, you couldn't really see that it was MJ in the previous one. The contrast between the shadow on the left side of his face still needs a bit of work. It goes from light to shadow too quickly if you get what I mean. If you fade it a bit more gradually to make that side look a bit rounder it will be perfect. --Dame Sonjesig.pngCherry-blossom.gif 10:30, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

If possible, you're better off starting with a pic of him looking off in the direction you want, rather than warping a pic to make it look like he's at the right angle (unless he's just lumpy. Normally, he turns off the light when we snuggle. I've said too much). Warped pics tend to look, um, warped. Sorry if I got technical there. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:21, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

The problem with warp is that your brain thinks in 3D, but the pics are just 2D representations of 3D objects, so warping them never quite looks right. It's a tool of last resort. On a side note, I was in Tool of Last Resort. It was a buddy comedy with Dane Cook. I played a well-meaning but naive employee at a rundown hotel. He was the tool. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:30, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
My brain barely manages thoughts in 2 1/2D. Anyway, I fixed the warp, but I have this recurring problem when I re-upload stuff. The new file doesnt seem to show. Is this merely because I am impatient? Or is it something more sinister? --Dame Sonjesig.pngCherry-blossom.gif 22:17, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree with Modus, use a pic in which the towers are clearer and use more characters from the worms games in it. I'm sure there was a worm with a turban somewhere. And the worms characters will have to be higher resolution cause the current solitary worm is very blurry.

I L♥VE the basic concept, not so much for the execution in my opinion. I think it needs to feel more like the cover of Dead Space if you know what I mean. And those "screenshots" on the back are so overused, I would try something completely original. I don't know if you are trying for a text adventure or a high-graphic survival game, but that needs to be better defined. Like I said, it would be better if their was less recycling.
