Game 211: Charles Darwin

view profile

9brandon says:

Next Tuesday is Charles Darwin's 199th birthday -- and what better way to celebrate his relevance to the modern age than with an evolving game of Photoshop Tennis?

The rules: keep it safe for work, and play nice with intellectual property, since the results will be posted on the Wired Science blog.

Have fun!

Darwin

Just a little color correction and added some atmosphere to the background to add a little more photorealism, :)

This is one of my favorite photoshop tennis matches ever! Great work everybody. I love the Darwin car thing - not sure what they are called.

I'm glad someone fixed the ship. I've fixed the sky and added a few other bits of colour plus shadows.

Unfortunately the shoulder mounted friend doesn't appear quite so photorealistic as in the original B&W. Might be to do with the transition with the sky - anyone want to fix it?

Mythopoeikon says:

Ops, I really don't know what to do, it appeared as I was posting my last contribution.

Adding Michelangelo's portrait of the creation of man might be a little over the top... Maybe we should also add Michael Behe xD

What do you think? :S

Oh, the tail is a nice touch.

I can combine the two pictures pretty easily.

I didn't add the Michelangelo bit, just the light. Someone else added it, but posted in the pool and not in the thread.

Can't say I like that. I preferred it when it was semi-realistic.

What does Christ crucified have to do with Darwin (apart from the circuitous notion of religion). Sorry if I'm being picky. Now, if Darwin had a copy of the bible tucked into his coat below the lizard then that would have been much more subtle (he was a Christian, after all, and his own theory didn't sit so well with what the Bible says - a fact which he had to contend with). Ta da! And the bible appeared...

Even more subtle?
I propose to add this sketch of Darwin himself, his first diagram of an evolutionary tree... (Wikimedia)

Mythopoeikon says:

It looks nice

On other hand, I was thinking about putting some Discovery Institute dude, using some kind of projector device, for that bit with Michelangelo's creation of man. It should have been a clear parody as to the intentions of some creationist to portray their attempts as to supress Evolution Theory being taught on schools. But maybe that should have been a violation of © in Disco Tute's standards,,,

I dare say that this is one of the best photoshop tennis I've ever seen :D Kudos to everyone!

I don't know if one has the right to play twice. I take it, sorry...
Just an allusion to the discussion between Darwin & Lamarck about giraffe's neck... Please play with it.

cbnewham [deleted] says:

I agree - the Bible should be as it was with the subtle irony that I meant. The point is that Darwin was a Christian and the irony is that he developed a theory that directly challenges what the Bible says and what he originally believed in. If nobody changes it on the next edit I'll revert the title. I like your Paley reference gingi0.

emmanuelrio76 says:

You convinced me... Let's go back to the original title (and what a title!). I didn't understand the point before. Like in evolution : please get rid of what doesn't succeed. May the giraffe stay?

Darwin didn't buy Paley's argument by the time he was this age.

QwirkSilver: That's very true. Still, that area of the image references Darwin's religious evolution (wow, bad pun).

cbnewham [deleted] says:

It's actually quite good - the Bible is in front, then the picture, and behind that the diagram. Evolutionary thinking indeed.

Does someone want to add Abraham Lincoln - it just now occured to me that Darwin and Lincoln were born on the same exact day.

Homo balnearus? I find it nice, but don't have access to the LARGE (mandatory) size file... Please re-up-load it... Would be nice to have a motion blur on the man on the left, and perhaps the same tones for the swimmers as for the homo sapiens...

When I saw this game going on, this was the first thing I thought of. Figured that someone would post the idea in a day or so. Since it Didn't show up, here is my version of "Regress to the Planet of the Apes"

My favorite picture is the one by wlauber. I think the monkey face on Darwin doesn't look so good and goes overboard with the concept. Not a big fan of the giraffe either, seems out of place.
