Someone put up an image with this joke on VFP. I decided to see what would happen if I tried to do it well. Comments, suggestions? ---QuillRev. Isra (talk) 22:17, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Pretty good. I think it would be more effective if you put elder Bush on the left and tried to get their names in the title.--Procopius 16:47, 17 October 2006 (PDT)
  • The problem is, while your image itself is original, the idea itself is far from it. Googling images for "dumb dumber bush" I came up with several varations on the theme: I'm sure that there are more...The VFP'd one, by the way, had Bush Jr and a Bush Jr impressionist. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:33, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
  • How about you do Steven Harper (He's my Prime Minister, eh?) and Bush. They are like clones it seems. --Sir Zombiebaron 19:46, 17 October 2006 (PDT)

  • I thought of this when I was making Leonard's arm for Memento, but it didn't fit the burgery theme of the page, so I never made it. Apologies for the quality, I couldn't find a hi-res cap of Leonard w/the pic...and my dvd collection is still waiting to be unpacked.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:10, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
You should probably flip the order to "!Better Goes Fresh".--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:37, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. I should've pointed that out to me that earlier.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:39, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
This might be kind of crazy, so feel free to ignore it, but remember those Mentos commercials from the 90s. The basic theme of them was that someone would either do something odd or make some sort of social gaff, but then they'd pop open a mentos, chew one, everything would be alright, and then the frame would freeze, the mentos logo would come up and then the announcer would say "the fresh maker." The Foo Fighters did an entire video that was just a bunch of parodies of these commercials. Maybe you could try to replicate this effect on the scene where Leonard drinks spit or something. Except it'd be Momentos. I dunno. ---QuillRev. Isra (talk) 02:50, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
For a page, perhaps. But I figure that any Memento page I make would just be "another Memento page" (for examples, see Jesus). My original sketch shows Leonard holding a packet o' Mentos and smiling (like the last scene of those infernal Mentos ads). This picture is more recognizable as Memento (tradeoff being that it loses a bit of Mentos).--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:01, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

About my comment of VFP... there isn't anything inherently wrong with it, I just think that adding head onto a picture is just a relatively simple manner of photoshopping. Of course, I should talk. Also, now I realize it's not just the head; for the monkey you also added limbs. So, in other words, I should shut up. -- §. | WotM | PLS | T | C | A

Whoa dude, I leave off Reefer for a few days and something gets featured. AND there's a few Reefer pics on VFP to come...
Anyway, I like this. It looks a lot better in its downsized version: blown up you can see the joins, though. I know it's already been featured, but it might have benefitted from the 'chopped heads to look more painterly. As for the concept, it's brilliant. A deserved feature. -- Hindleyite 17:49, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

  • This came from my previous attempt at road-signary. That one really didn't have a punchline, and will probably end up on an UnNews article, which since I've now given away my idea will now be, written by someone else. Anyway, this one has more of a punchline, bigger text, and includes a refrence to British sport. --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 00:09, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Since you have Buffalo referenced, you almost HAVE to have it specifically mention wide right...--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 00:30, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
Maybe if you could explain what "wide right" means. --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 01:06, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
      • Actually, it probably won't work. "Wide right" refers to the Buffalo Bills' first Super Bowl loss, where their kicker missed a field goal at the end of the game wide right. They've been to three more since then, but were never that close to winning. Just seeing "Football" and "Buffalo" makes me think "wide right," even if it doesn't mean much in the "roadsign" angle.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 01:23, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure if you caught on to the background or the caption, but the sport portrayed in this image is the original football, called "soccer" by you southerners, eh? Thanks anyway Brad. I'm open to any and all suggestions. --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 02:08, 12 October 2006 (UTC)


St. Stephen the Martyr

Please Help this Picture
Stephenmartyr

St. Stephen the ProtoMartyr, the first adherant of the Christian faith to be martyred.

According to the New Testament Acts of the Apostles, Stephen attached sixteen sticks of dynamite to his chest, detonating them in a crowded market in Jerusalem, killing 32 Zionists and 2 Great Satans, and wounding dozens more. Stephen is venerated as a Saint by the Catholic Church, and in many countries St. Stephen's Day is a publicly recognized holiday.

St. Stephen is depicted here in a 12th century Orthodox icon. The grenade in his hand is probably anachronistic.

Trying my hand at an image for VFP. Comments on image, caption and VFPability are welcome. ---QuillRev. Isra (talk) 23:32, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

The dynamite should be more "dynamitey", a la this. Whenever I make a pic with a dynamite bomb, I put an analog clock timer on the front, like so Image:Howtosuicide-bomb.jpg; it's technically unnecessary, but I am quite mad. Mad! Also I'm of the opinion that a standalone pic should, um, standalone. That is, if it needs a caption at all, it should be short. The pic is the cake, the caption is the icing. Of course, there are those that would disagree. They think I'm mad. Mad!--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:49, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
Looks good, althought if you could sort of... I don't know how to describe it.. dull the grenade a bit, so it looks more like it belongs in the image, it might help? It looks a bit "added-in" still.--Theo 00:30, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
Don't listen to Modus. He's mad. Long captions are the wave of the future, my friend, and more closely parallel the evil children at Wikipedia.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 00:31, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

I reddedned up the dynamite like modus suggested. Added a new version just before this comment, but am still having some trouble with the grenade. ---QuillRev. Isra (talk) 01:33, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
Cool, it looks a bit like a kiwi bird. You probably just need to fade the grenade (or lower its contrast, or colour saturation) vice the kiwi-ification.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:45, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

  • I liked how this turned out, although I did it with the GIMP and it may show. Anyway, if you have suggestions to improve it, I'd love to hear them. It's the only image I've made that I think has an outside chance to be VFP -- although I won't weep if it's not worthy. I know we've been hitting the Maoist stuff hard lately.--Procopius 02:24, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
It's cute, and yes VFP took a swing to the left...don't worry, it'll turn violently to the right next. Mae West to Mao Zedong is a bit of a stretch for a pun, mostly because kids these days probably haven't heard of her (and I think the VFP crowd has matured beyond the head-swap'd pic phase). I would say that you should start a Mae Zedong page, but that link isn't red, so you already are.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:42, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks -- I figured the picture would have a hard time standing on its own. Oh well. I have to say it was a little spooky how well Mae West fit on Mao's head.--Procopius 03:08, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm sure there's a good conspiracy theory to explain that. Welcome to the club, if you haven't been welcomed already. "Chop-anon"; we meet on Thursday nights and talk about our head-swap and colour-balancing related nightmares. Plus there's coffee.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:32, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
You might want to try it at VFP; I'd vote for and, even if it fails, you'd have popped your VFP cherry, as it were.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:34, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Okay, not that its bad. But it is. Why? Cause Ive seen like 200 head swaps using that same photo on VFP. Thankfully none of them are featured. --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 03:37, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Gotcha -- I admit, it's one o' my first attempts at photo manipulation, so it's going to have a strong tendency to, um, suck. I'll just file this one under juvenalia . . .--Procopius 03:49, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
No no don't get me wrong. If I knew who Mae West was, and if that image of Mao Zedong hadn't been head swapped so many times, I might even vote for it. But I don't and it has. Its not you're fault, so keep trying! --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 06:39, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, don't lose heart! It's not bad for an early attempt. Someone who's never seen the poster before might find it funny... but I would try to think of a better subject for your Potatochops, this has been done before. Remember, appropriation is good, but too much and it becomes cliched. -- Hindleyite 19:19, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Do some people need a cookie and some milk? It sounds like some people are a little bit cranky-wanky. Maybe it will help some people if they never again put a cross made of poop on VFP, hmmm?--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:48, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

maybe just "...in the comics." It's shorter, and still gets the point across.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 19:22, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
Baah! I just called it that because a few years ago I went back and read (or reread) most of the "Great Literature" that I'd skipped through in highschool and found, to my dismay, that most of what was presented as "Great Literature" was not great at all. "Pretentious" would be a better word (famous literaturologist wrote a book on The Metamorphosis with 130 different theories on what the story means. 130, and it's a friggin' short story! That's not great; that's muddled). But I digress.
"...in the comics." sounds okay.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:44, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

I think it's about as good as it's going to get, now. Put something about Kafka getting sued by Gary Larson (creator of "The Far Side") in the caption, and I think you've got a winner.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 00:42, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
Or, to be more Kafkaish (and a sly reference to the awful "The Trial"), "Franz Kafka started his career as a newspaper cartoonist, before being sued by Gary Larson in the court of his own mind". Wow, that didn't seem all that obscure until I typed it out.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:49, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

  • This is a great concept. I suggest you go with it, though I would have an old fashioned, small portable television instead of the widescreen, which takes up a load of the 'canvas'. Just be careful to make it blend in with the paint. It might also help, as FM says, to get a higher resolution version of the painting - it's pretty famous so there should be loads of versions about. -- Hindleyite 19:21, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Try cutting the edged around Einstein closer; the leftovers around the pipe, in particular, stick out like a sore thumb. Blur or fade the edges around the hair more.

Lastly, as much as I love German, it is the language of love after all, if you have to explain a joke it's too obscure.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:14, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

After hours of struggling with paint.NET, I downloaded the GIMP and did this in less time than it took me to look up every rude word in every language and apply them liberally to Microsoft's lumbering pile of crud. Speaking of lumbering piles of crud, what do you think of the picture? ---El Zoof 06:34, 14 February 2007 (UTC) Stupid machine doing what I tell it to instead of what I want it to...

Wouldn't an iCcordian only have that wheel thingy? I'm asking for real, all I know about iCrap is I don't need one. The accordian folds should probably match the iPod colour scheme. Other than that; a good take on a grossly overdone meme. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:47, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

It's an interesting idea but...(take a deep breath, this may hurt)...Einstein's head is out of proportion with his body. His arm/hand doesn't look, um, human. The "pimped" should probably be superscript (offset up higher than the "E=MC"). The "A stein E stein" is hard to read. Wasn't his DJ "RLO-t.v.t." or somesuch nonsense? Not that I'm any judge, but it would get butchered on VFP, IMO.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:42, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

seriously, to tell the truth, i just got a picture of Chamillionaire, and chopped his head off -medieval style. SO Chamillionaire just probably isnt human then if the arm looks "unhuman", or as you youngsters say "His arm/hand doesn't look, um, human." Anyway, thanks for your other help Modusperandi, it actually does help, and i also made this before i got GIMP, with ...(shudder) MS paint, so that might explain it's crappiness, but hey, Leave it to Jocke Pirat to make something better, AND ONE-UP EVERYONE! (ahem, Hannibal article) hahaha --Arborguitars 23:36, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

I liked your concept, and I thought of doing something fun with it by making it better quality since I could do it quickly(though I'm not the best photoshopper - none of my images nominated ever got through VFP). I never really intended to one-up you with it, though. I don't know how I'm one upping someone with Hannibal, though. --~ Tophatsig 01:26, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

No, i didn't mean that you were upping one with Hannibal, but as you may have noticed, i had said "making something better" before i say that you participate in upping ones. Meaning that Hannibal sucked, but you fixed it up. And i dont care that you one upped me, seriously...i also dont care that "one upping" has lost all meaning at the end of this comment.--Arborguitars 01:41, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Play around with the angle on his mask; it's crooked. For his badge, rotate it aboot fifteen degrees ccw; it should probably rest with the red cross, as they would say in the wild west, "Real upright-like".

Try making a blurry circle that's the same colour as the glow, cut out the center (again, blurred), and paste it as a "soft color" layer on top. Or, if you've got a steady hand, airbrush it in.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:45, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

The text is too far left; it doesn't have to be centered, but it's making me lean way over. Maybe that's just me. Depending on whether the people have feet or not, try moving them up (maybe mirror them), put the text on the top, and the logo on the bottom right. It might balance better that way (it's bottom heavy right now).--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:09, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Better. Try having the text as:
Tired of being in shock?
Or are you not getting
shocked enough?
That will eliminate the need for the text to spill onto the people. I didn't know that the angle of the people differed that much from the background pic; it looks like they're flying. Maybe crop a bit off the bottom (after moving the logo up).--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 09:48, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Heh, that's quite good. Only problem is that I can't read the red text on that browny background. Consider making it a paler colour or giving it a border or something. -- Hindleyite Converse 11:38, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
  • If I still had fireworks I'd give it a border, but I can't get a border in GIMP. I need a color that's light enough to show up in the background and in the light background. I've created this version which is slightly more clear, but I can't get the full color quality of the original XCF.--~ Tophatsig 01:07, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

/me looks confused, shrugs. Leno chin is pointy, domokun are cubic. Leno is really white, domokun are brown. I'm not seeing the link. As for how to improve it; work in higher resolution, jpgs (depending on your application) artifact like an SOB (which is really noticeable in the pic). Try to keep the mouth and eyes in scale/in line (the eyes and mouth are crooked).
