Is this art?

Post by Thunder Beer »

So I have this friend, lets just call him A-Man. He is bald.

This is what he looks like:

Image


He recently had his birthday, so I came up with this great idea that me and my friends should buy him hair-transplants. I did some photoshop work to find the perfect look. We desided that he should choose which one he liked best, and then get it for him.

Here are some of the alternatives that we ended up with:

(he looks a bit like that Mika guy)

Image









Many good looks, no doubt about it. However, this was the one he liked best:

Image



"Fine... Youll look like that before the end of the week" we said. He was really thrilled about the whole idea, and so were we. He wanted to be handsome on his 24th birthday. We all did...
It turned out that hair-transplants are really really expensive, so we bought him this similar, nice, cheap wig instead.



Here he is, waiting for his suprise:

Image



Look how happy he is with his new beautiful hair:

Image



His mind goes back to those horrible days without hair. "Never again" he thought:

Image



Some small adjustments...
Image


aaaand.... PERFECT! (That other guy is this retard i know, named Jose. More about him later).

Image



A-Man is ready for town:

Image



He hung out in the bar most of the time, looking for chicks:

Image


The wig looked really good in profile:

Image


As always, the crew split up... A-Man was left alone at the nightclub. As people around him got drunker, many tried to pull his wig off. (How they knew that it was a wig, beats me). Anyway, he later told us that he felt really stupid, and got tired of everyone making fun of him. So he ended up telling people to leave him alone, because he had cancer (he doesnt)... I imagine this to be similar to the scene from The Elephant Man where he yells out "Iam not an animal....".

On his way home... alone, this junkie told A-Man that he had beautiful hair. A-Man pulled it off, and told him the truth.. "its only a wig, but thanks".



Meanwhile, both me and Jose got layed.




Bonus:

This is the first manipulation, and its done by Jose:

Image

He was satisfied, and thought it was good...




This thread belongs in this section, right?

You're great, Toby!
I think he looks best in the Elvis look but maybe that's just me.

Thanks. Elvis looks nice, but personally I like the one where he is bald with the Tom Selleck moustache.
The funniest one however, is the one made by Jose...

It is a huge success. True genious is only recognized by a few.

If a lot of people were responding here it would be a sure sign of main stream mediocracy.

Would you please get rid of the hall of flame? Obviously anyone who was interested in it had more than ample time to read it now. I'm just really trying to foregt about that piece of shit Denise as much as possible. And I think it is pretty much juvenile keeping it up. Will you please forgive me and take it down? I'd really appreciate it. Please let me know. Thanks a lot. Happy Holidays, take care, peace!

Yeah, photoshop is fun.

The original picture was black and white (the first one in this thread).
My friend showed me how add colors (like in the Time magazine cover).

I wasnt too crazy about the manipulations. The face is a bit out of focus compared to the hair, but like I said, Im no pro...

Thank you Cottage!
