What is a Photoshop Phriday?

Photoshopping isn't drawing a completely new image -- It's editing images to create a new image, such as editing one image or combining several images.

Also, you don't have to specifically use Photoshop -- Paint Shop Pro, MSPaint, or any other programs can be used.

See this link:
http://www.somethingawful.com/photoshop/

And for other examples, see here:
http://www.worth1000.com/

The two above websites should give a fair idea of what is involved.

Also, make sure your image doesn't exceed the width of the screen -- If it does, I will delete it.

-------------------------------------

What do I have to do?

This week's Photoshop Phriday is: "Real Life Puzzles"

This one is a little more advanced than previous ones.

Simply photoshop two or more real life images to make a replica of a famous adventure game puzzle/scene.

For example:



Also, don't tell which puzzle/scene it is -- See if people can guess it.

If you guess, make sure you *hide* your answer.

Special thanks to Esseb for this idea!

At first I thought it was Sam n Max (the puzzle at the bungee tarpits), but the hooded guy can only mean Bobbin, Manny, or the Manhunter.

I'm stumped -- Anyone else want to try?

Here's another one -- very easy this one:




EDIT: I got N3T's entry after doing a little research, but I haven't played the game in N3T's entry.

By the way, I actually made two versions of the monkey wrench picture. The first one didn't quite convey what I wanted. You can probably see why:

The second one was cool.  The heroine was a lot different from most adventure game females (Not perky & goody-goody) and she kicked so much ass over Brandon (Annoying little stick-up-his-arse dude).  The hand was really cool too, the different worlds were amazing and the art was excellent.  I think the reason the 3rd sticks in my mind so much is that Malcolm was such an a-hole.  Random comments like, "Ah, squirrels. I like squirrels," and, "Clouds, I like clouds," followed by multi-clicking or randomly said, "Squirrels..  he he..  *boom!*"  I dunno, I liked the whole good vs. evil scenario even if the consciences were overly obnoxious.  I definately prefer the 2D art of the previous ones, though.  Argh, this photoshop phriday (eat a dick, eric) is becoming Adventure Game Talk & Chat.

.  But I thought the cowboy was a pirate or perhaps a soldier from the revolutionary war..  and the snails I couldn't pick out even after you mentioned them, until I'd started at the picture for 10 seconds or so.. they blend into the landscape making it look like a slope instead of a cliff.  Good idea for one, though.
