Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

When we say "Pinocchio", you'll most likely say "a puppet turns into a human". Now let's turn that around a bit. Pick a photo of at least one person or animal (it can be only the head or the whole body) and turn it into a puppet. You can make it as fancy as you want, but be aware: it has to be a puppet, not just a doll!
If you're not sure what a puppet is, check here .
Good luck!

Required level: 8+ or higher.
Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

The title actually refers to the fact that I entered this in a theme contest [don't remember the theme, but I entitled this 'Puppetmaster' which ties in with this contest's theme] on the previous incarnation of this site the very week that it crashed more than a year ago (and when this image still had a modicum of topicality :-) ) -- but since that contest was never completed, I can resurrect and re-enter it so I don't have to feel all my effort was wasted. Construction is essentially chop and blend with some cloning and shading. (5 years and 2719 days ago)
