Fun With Elvis on Photoshop — 2

Last week, we got serious and did a historical piece on Elvis’ most significant ancestor.  According to my wife, it was too serious — and boring.  She likes all the fun stuff I put in ElvisBlog.  So, this week, we are going back to fun – fun with Elvis on Photoshop..  It’s too late to give proper credit to all the clever people who created these things and put them on the web for me to borrow.  When I added them to My Pictures, I failed to note where they came from —  but thank you all, anyway.

 

Let’s start with a nifty image of what Elvis would look like if he had lived to be an old man.  He still looks very handsome, doesn’t he?  Vernon kept his full head of hair into old age, so Elvis may well have turned out like this.  Looks like he could still beat the crap out of the bad guys in a movie, doesn't he?

Here’s a type of composite picture that wasn’t featured the first time we looked at Elvis treatments in Photoshop.  There is a large photo of young Elvis, plus a smaller shot of older Elvis in his jumpsuit standing on top of the marquee of the International Hotel in Las Vegas.

One of the most common themes last time was Elvis' head on other peoples' bodies.  Here's one I like:  Indiana Presley.

Well, if we can have Elvis as a movie character, why not Elvis as a TV character?

He's got the pointy ears, so this must be Elvis as Mr. Spock.  I would rather see him as Captain Kirk.  Then DJ Fontana could be Spock, Scotty Moore could be Dr. McCoy, and Col. Parker could be some mutant space alien.
 
The reverse treatment is fun, too.  Last time, we saw a number of politicians' heads replacing Elvis in jumpsuit shots.  Here's what Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger looks like.  “Thank you.  Thank you, very much.  I'll be back.”

Who do you think looks better in a jumpsuit — Arnold or Vladimir Putin?

A theme we looked at last time was Elvis' image altered in some manner.  We had a melting Elvis picture then, and here is another one now.  I think this is so clever.

Here's another Elvis image with a different twist.  I call it Swirling Elvis.

And finally, here is my favorite altered Elvis.  Just immagine if Elvis was a 20-year-old today and performed the popular music of the times.  We might have Rapper Elvis.

Elvis In the hood!  How do they think up this stuff?
