Bill Clinton mask (because I didn't have a Bush mask handy), a devils horn (I only could find one) and a little Photoshop magic.

OK a lot of Photoshop magic. This photo has the most post-processing work I have ever done on an image.

Very creative and well done. I assume you used Clinton because you couldn't find a Bush mask. ;-)

Very very clever and well done. I wonder about the fact that the mask looks a little like Bill Clinton lol.

Great setup, great lighting, great title, great job.
06/07/2008 04:24:07 PM
Great concept!

A great idea for this challenge and the lighting is quite good except for some hot spots in the red. Then again, in this instance, "hot" spots might be quite appropriate!

Is that Bill clinton- your a few years too late. And, if you want to call politicians the devil, stick to republicans- they fit a bit better- say Nixon, Reagan or Bush, or ...Cheney? anyway- great shot! super lighting and expression.

Is that Bill Clinton? Quite a statement. Nice makeup job. Good lighting.
06/06/2008 09:54:48 AM
great portrait. the low side lighting effectively conveys the mood.
06/05/2008 08:09:47 PM
very clever idea!
06/05/2008 03:28:03 PM
wrong president
06/04/2008 08:17:08 PM
Woulda gotten an extra point for a Cheney, Bush, or Rove mask. Still, nicely done.
06/03/2008 09:57:54 PM
haha! i love it
06/03/2008 03:15:50 PM
Lol clever idea.
06/03/2008 02:41:09 PM

One of the tops this round - 9

Beautifully taken - should go straight to the top.
06/02/2008 01:27:14 PM
Nice idea and execution.

Is that supposed to be Bill Clinton? Probably not many people's first choice for the devil, although I guess he lost the respect of many people with some of his remarks during his wife's campaign...
06/02/2008 12:21:38 PM
my FAVORITE of the bunch! great job...
06/02/2008 09:28:46 AM
ROFL is that Clinton? hahaha
06/02/2008 06:09:50 AM
I wonder if it's intentional that the mask being pulled off is of Slick Willy...

Nice lighting and a fun idea.
06/02/2008 02:03:11 AM
Nice job. Very creative. Good luck!
06/02/2008 01:27:02 AM
I really like the concept of this shot. I'm predicting a top 10 from this.
