Winning entry, with a score of:
67.6%
Contest goal:

Last week we saw a lot of members in this topic here: http://www.pxleyes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=61 Your task is to choose someone and create an exact replica of him/her using multiple photos! You can also create dolls, robots or everything you want, important is that the member is clearly recognizable : you can not use directly the member's photo and you can not represent a member who is not shown in the Forum. Top scores go to funny pictures and realistic works.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!
Suggested by: Giallo

arkncheeze: Is it okay to use image of the memebers as a reference right??? Also can we use illustration... Not just simple trace and coloring... But using it imaginatively??? ( 5 years and 1933 days ago )
animmax: I don't like the sound of this!! ( 5 years and 1933 days ago )
DanLundberg: I'm curious how the contest title relates to the theme description. ( 5 years and 1933 days ago )
Lelaina: Dan, sosia is Italian and means doubleganger/look-alike (not sure, which one is the right word) ( 5 years and 1932 days ago )
TheRealPhotoshopGirl: Is it ok that I just did it from scratch? I only looked at the users photo...I can post a video tut of me doing it if you need me too. ( 5 years and 1930 days ago )
Akassa: That means we can't use only the person's picture as reference? Like to create a paint/vector/pop art? ( 5 years and 1930 days ago )
mariosilva: i didn´t get nothing about this contest, dt know where pick sources even, pop art i know how to do it!! i wood like to enter here ,somoene can help me? ( 5 years and 1930 days ago )
mariosilva: and for shore it´s not only me this contest have 2 days and one entry!!!!! ( 5 years and 1930 days ago )
wazowski: Mario, check this page if you want to know more about free sources http://www.pxleyes.com/blog/2009/06/how-and-where-to-find-legal-source-images/ ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
Akassa: Moderator i think he's talking about the sources to this contest which is the forum thread: http://www.pxleyes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=61 ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
mariosilva: ye akassa u understood my question thanks, and thanks also to moderater booth links are hellpful 4 me ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
arkncheeze: time out time out... Need clarification about the theme of this contest... It states that "Your task is to choose someone and create an exact replica of him/her using multiple photos! You can also create dolls, robots or everything you want, important is that the member is clearly recognizable : you can not use directly the member's photo"... So far the entry are made as it is as in the image posted in the forum... I think what Gallio means to say is make them like as you can see in police station, pictures of suspect are made from different part of different faces put together(can't explain it properly)... I think thats what Gallio wants us to do... Can anyone esp. Gallio confirm on this??? ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
RGB: I hope that i`m not next LOL good luck people! ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
elficho: it's pretty hard to do something "realistic" like the contest goal suggests, as we have mostly only one photo of the member which is not frontal so we have to guess what the person really looks like imo ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
DigitalDreamer: cool idea can't wait to see the entries come in ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
nasirkhan: Moderator presently there are 2 entries which looks off-theme and I have also commented, Am I correct ?. If external sources is not needed that I also want to create one entry from sctrach using illustrator and drawing. Please clearify. ( 5 years and 1929 days ago )
arkncheeze: I agree with you elficho, but the real contest theme is hard... Damn gallio :-P... Also I am with nasirkhan, if it's okay to use illustration then I will also submit some illustration... I have so many idea, but was holding on it since it doesn't match up with the theme... ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
TheRealPhotoshopGirl: Is it ok that I just did it from scratch? I only looked at the users photo...I can post a video tut of me doing it if you need me too. I didnt want to use any other photos. I am always trying to do everything on my own. ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
TheRealPhotoshopGirl: If not let me know, and I guess I can add some elements from different sources, but I really dont see the big deal of creating it from scratch... ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
Giallo: Bahah damn I'm not Gallio!!!!!! I'm GIALLO!!!!! ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
mymy: Drwing it from scratch is alloed Giallo said, and that's not him writing now ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
arkncheeze: srry Gallio... opps I mean Giallo.. ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
Giallo: ufff.... BTW yeah folks you can draw ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
KatGV: SO is a vector drawing ok then??? ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
Giallo: everything is ok KatGV the most important thing is that we clearly recognize who is the person and that you don't use the photos in the forum as a source but you can use them as reference (suggested) ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
Balmung: Is GIMP allowed? ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
DigitalDreamer: I hope some people don't mind them using there pics :P ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
bddesign: omg, here we go with the tacky filters... hahaha!!! ( 5 years and 1928 days ago )
arkncheeze: @Balmung... Yes Gimp is allowed... ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
nishagandhi: the entries till now are really goodi am amazed ...people are so talented here ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
mariosilva: i took my work out but i saw works here using direct photos as well ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
arkncheeze: Well this contest kinda confusing... Direct use means, you can use the photo direct as in apply filter to it, e.g. using threshold... But you can trace it using pen tool, that way it is used as reference... ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
arkncheeze: srry typo "you can use the photo direct as" should be"you cannot use the photo directly as" ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
arkncheeze: On second thought, I am not sure anymore... You shouldn't have removed it so quickly, should have enquired with the mods... ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
arkncheeze: OMG... So many illustration and all of them are so good... This contest gonna be wild ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
GolemAura: I'm so glad the flood gates have opened.. peeps are really using their painting talents.. THIS IS AWESOME ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
CMYK46: What a cluster F... ( 5 years and 1927 days ago )
pixelkid: lol@CMYK...love that word...clusterF... ( 5 years and 1926 days ago )
