This list is for those who like to mod photos. Now is your chance to get creative and share it with us.

Find a board game box cover (or some other component that works well) and put yourself in it somehow! Witty explanations are appreciated, of course.

Post your image here for all to see!

You are welcome to post more than one image.

1. Select the game you used for your photo as the geeklist item.
2. For the image, select the image you modded, or the box cover.
3. In the comments, post your customized image and mention what program(s) you used to mod it.

NOTE: This list is not for every image you've ever Photoshopped. Here, we want to see a common boardgame box cover or component with you blended in!

THIS GEEKLIST IS RATED G - PG! KEEP IT SAFE FOR LITTLE KIDS!

Thanks to Matthew Marquand for this tip: to make your image show up bigger, add the word "medium" after the image number in your post:

[ ImageID=359237 medium ]

I thought the artist did a pretty good job of painting my portrait for the new Masons: Games on the Table Edition.

I tried to match the art style as much as possible. I also took some liberty with the game title. Muhahahahahaha! Tweak the knob... tweak, tweak!



I used Paint Shop Pro 8 for everything. It's the same as Photoshop, but a lot cheaper and less bulky. I also used a couple of commercial plug-ins to help with changing the photo (my head) into something that looks a little more drawn. I could have matched it a bit better, but I wanted to get this up quick.

I have no idea why I changed the title.

My current favorite game, so I thought that should be the one to go with. That actually looks a lot like me when I haven't had a haircut for quite a while. I tried to match the coloring and paint style, but I'm just a hack at stuff like this so I couldn't really figure that out too well... and I couldn't find a picture where I was facing the right direction. But anyway, this was put together using Corel Photo-Paint X3.

Actually, I don't need to be photoshopped into a game, I was already painted into my game, "Mosby's Raiders." It was a trick played on me by our staff artist and it is now my BGG icon. Yep, that's me in the middle left firing my pistol into some Yank.


(Click picture above for a larger view)

PS. This is the third game cover I have been appeared on, the others were Avalon Hill's Golf game (I forget the exact name) and Yaquinto/Avalon Hill's "Trireme" game.

I am breaking some relus to this geeklist here as:
1 - I did not modded this image;
2 - It was modded on Corel Draw, not GIMP or PhotoShop (my wife only know how to use Corel Draw);
3 - It is not myself, but my son.
But I just received a T-shirt with this image for my first father's day gift. In Brazil, father's day is second sunday of August.

Photoshop. Nothing done to the picture at all. It's a photo shoot from a make up class I was volunteering for. I'm supposed to be an alien, but this pose (self shot) looked freaky enough to fit this game cover.

The voluptuous belle of the ball asks, "Will you dance with me?"

Again, this is another shot from my make up session. Took a bit of time to get the face and the hair to fit just right, then used a color layer to match the original painting's tone.

Pasted my face and stretched it to match the mask. Adjusted Color and Contrast to get the color close. Did a color replacement on my eyes and had to freestyle the yellow and black pupils because I was loosing too much detail. I added an Inner glow and a Bevel to try to give it depth like the other parts of the mask.
