We have a winner!

Hi all,

Been a little off grid for a couple of days, largely just weekend stuff, little bit of commission works too, but also a bit of recharging the batteries before the push towards Salute. I haven't produced anything this year that I have done specifically for competition, but I do feel pleased to have a decent varied body of work to take along this year. I expect to enter a few categories, but have no real expectation. I'm just pleased to show support for a couple of companies that have been generous and supportive to me. I have received one commission to present to a new company actually at the show, which will be shown here after the event, so I need to push on with that, and once that is done I'll get the Hasslefree girl done, maybe to a standard where I'm prepared to enter her at the event, but equally I may put her in the display case on the HF stand on the day with a few others.

Enough preamble though. What we want to know is what did you lovely people come up with for the Arnold Schwarzenegger/Lionel Richie mash up...?

Well, I am pleased to say that we had a few really fun entries which all raised a smile, as follows...

An Arnold Richie sketch by Roman Lappat was the first one and got an instant chuckle. He does look a LOT like former footballer and TV pundit, Chris Kamara too!


Conny Carlsson's weirdly necked photoshoppery raised a titter



 Ian Pursey's snappy lyric brought on a smile
  
"he's once, twice, three times a Termie"


 Normski Ealand's two entries of 'shoppery were at first grin worthy, then utterly terrifying! That second one looks like Michael Jackson on steroids! O_O




Jack Crowe gets a spot prize of a cookie, or an empty pot noodle pot (lol) for his commitment to the cause with a full rewriting of "Stuck on You"...

"Here is a little unknown cover song, originally by Lionel Richie, serenaded to our hero Arnie by the Predator as he was stalking him through the jungle. Link at the bottom so you can sing along...
I'm Hunting you, by Arnie Richie
I'm Hunting You I've got this feeling deep down in my soul that I'm gonna kill you You'll be in so much pain. Needed a friend and the way I feel now I guess I'm going to cut off your head You'll be in so much pain When I skin your face
I'm hunting you
I've been invisible too long, it's time to reveal myself
You'll be in so much pain.
So hard to see, my chameleon skin in the jungle whilst I'm stalking you
You'll be in so much pain
when I skin your face

Oh, you think you're leaving on that chopper tomorrow
but I know just where you're going
You think you've packed up all your troubles and thrown them away
But trust me, little Arnie
I'm going to rip off your face.

I'm hunting you
I've got this feeling deep down in my soul that I'm gonna kill you
You'll be in so much pain.
Needed a friend
and the way I feel now I guess I'm going to cut off your head
You'll be in so much pain
When I skin your face

But, the winner and the one that made me splutter a bit of tea had to be Lone Skeleton's fine photoshop effort that started cool, went dark and finally hit with a triple combo of film poster, lyrical slogan plus the addition of Emma Thompson in one of the most obscure films that I never knew Arnie (let alone Lionel) even starred in!


Congratulations to Lone Skeleton! You get the Kingdom Death Chosen/Arnel Schwarzenichie model to mash up yourself, or paint beautifully, of course! Please email/PM me your details and I'll get him out in the post to you

(The previous random winners - my apologies, I've not made it down to the post office yet with your prizes, due to lots of random excuses that I won't bore you with! I WILL absolutely get your packages out this week. I am a naughty man...)

Thanks to the rest of you for taking part. It was great to have you join in with the silliness that inhabits my head a lot of the time!

Lets see if we can make it to 1000 likes so that I can dream up another daft competition! ^_^

Catch you soon,

Scott
