Yes, I'm a sick puppy and I know it.

This is the original movie poster that I parodied:
Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_879788.jpg

Had some difficulty getting Kermit's position looking similar to Alec Baldwin's in the real movie poster. It was hard to position his arms behind his head and that aspect didn't work out as well as I wanted. Didn't have a white pajama top for him either and that took some color changes to the shirt he borrowed from G.I. Joe. I'm very pleased with the remainder of the poster.


Anticipated critiques:
-Kermit looks awkward
-You are a sick puppy


Post-challenge notes:
I'm very pleased to have another of my humorous entries on my profile page. I knew I was on the right track when I posted my initial camera work in the team thread and 21.gif MattO's response was "This is wrong on so many levels". Didn't think it could come in this high until it kept climbing. I was on the edge of my seat all week.

Expensive shot then by all accounts :-) (bank accounts I mean)

Sorry, I'll have to live with the guilt.

Taking some time out to leave some comments. Congrats Steve on the top 5 placement! Love all the details you put into this piece right down to the small type; the details propel this above average shot into the excellent top notch. It made me laugh - love the humor. The lighting and pose of your main subjects is just spot on perfect. Excellent work!

Congrats on the 5th place. Love this poster and was too much fun to watch you do it.

Would have give it a 10 but didn't vote for obvious reasons. That is an honest vote on the challenge and not for any other reason.

This is too funny. Well done, although a little blown out near the top. And I'd have used the skinny font for your credits paragraph. Rated R - too much!!
