Worth1000 Taking Liberties with the Classics

347712ubdy_w.jpgWorth1000, the perennial Photoshop contest web site has just posted a recent contest titled Counterfeit Art 11–How to tell your fine art is a forgery. The contestants have been taking liberties with the classics…

From the web site come these contest rules: “The rules of this game are thus: You will take any famous painting or artwork (any period is fine) and alter it in such a way that it is obviously a forgery, as in the themepost. As always, quality is a must. We will remove poor entries no matter how much we like you. You’ll have 48 hours to submit for this contest, so make your submission count.”

Hit list: NO celebrities. NO guitars. Use them and get disqualified.
