I have a friend whose birthday was yesterday, and I am setting up a website for him. I realized I don't have too many pics of him, but he's a bit of a jokester, and I thought it would be funny to use PS to make some silly photos of him like everyone did to poor (;) dustdevil.

Then I had the idea to post his pic here, and let you folks abuse his picture and make him look silly (or goth). You are just the people to do it!

To make it fun, I'll make it a contest. Prize is any of my prints up to 8x10 (printed locally and shipped to you). I may let my friend do the judging...

Anything's fair, but stay within the site rules for decency. And in case, for some reason, he's not happy about his picture being on the web in this thread forever (personally he won't mind, but what if he wants to run for president or something), I may ask people to take down the shots at some time.

Have fun. Now, what photo to use? To give you an idea of his sense of humor, and to give you one with a good expression, perhaps we should go with this one:


He's the clown holding the napkin (his name is Tim)... ;)

He immediately makes me think of Bob from the Cialis commercials..

can you give any hints on his personnality or jokes he likes to play to maybe give some ideas?

Let's see, that's hard (just because I have a bad memory). When playing a frisbee challenge, he would be the one to pull down your shorts so he could run and get the frisbee.

In general, he's just does silly things (like in the pic)

By the way, if it needs to be larger, since he's small in it, I can upload one that's larger.

Something else that might help: he's an environmental scientist by profession. From his bio: "conservation biologist...experience in biodiversity planning, ecological monitoring, endangered species reintroduction and recovery, protected areas management, biological and social science research, and training"

Yes please on the bigger pic...

I'm pretty new to using Photoshop for things like this, but I gave it a shot anyway. I think others could have executed better, but I thought this was funny none the less.

Last one...it was too fun.

Hillarious stuff so far! I think he'll enjoy the set!

Very creative! I am looking forward to seeing the rest.

I guess I should put a end date on the contest: how about Thursday midnight. That way, I can put them all up on his website and tell him about it this weekend. He's not a DPC member, so fortunately he won't see this and ruin the surprise.

He looks like the guy holding a bud light on the super bowl ticket contest.

Here is mine, I hope he likes it, and more importantly, I hope I got the right guy234568.jpg

Excuse the additional bump, please, but I want to make sure anyone who wants to play knows about this and it dropped off the visible message queue.

Hope this is clean enough?
