RIP Brutus

You knew this now iconic photo of David Perkins destroying Brutus Buckeye would be the topic of a Photoshop Phriday.

If you're new to 11W Photoshop Phriday hijinks, your task is simple: Take some or all of the elements of the photo above, grab Photoshop (or MS Paint if you like to party) and make us laugh. Or awe us.

Leave your masterpiece as a comment in this thread and one winner, chosen via comment voting, will take home a free shirt of their choice from Eleven Warriors Dry Goods.

The Rules:

  • Entrants must be 18 or older.
  • The entry must feature some or all elements of the photo of David Perkins rocking Brutus Buckeye that you see above.
  • Residents of Michigan are not eligible for the contest.
  • Deadline for entries and voting is noon on Monday, April 15, 2013.

Good luck!

Someone's gotta start this party off.

Aw man I knew that'd happen... boo. Got one upvote prior to it getting deleted though! Haha it was beastie boys

I've got a work day ahead of me (no Photoshop here), a 3 mile run, and an ab workout. You'll hear from me later today on this!

Strong start. I was thinking someone should go all Michael Bay and have them jumping away from an explosion, this is kind of along those lines and I like it.

You can't go wrong with Brutus AND Iron Man.  Nicely done.

Hahaha I love it, especially the text beside it ... "ESPN Fires Mark May". Great job!

Tremendous work, Hodge!

We don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan, we're from O-HI-O!

11W: It's time to just put Hodge on staff as house photoshop editor.
Ridiculous!

Hodge: your work is a piece of art. Nicely done! BTW, I think it's funny that when you hover over the original picture at the top and "RIP Brutus" pops up.

HAHAHA! Just read the details! Brilliant!

Shouldn't Lou be saying "BUSCHTED"?

zachofaltrades's picture

I experimented with a couple of slurred versions of "busted" but I was worried the message would be lost.

Lou.....just. don't. look.

I upvoted pretty much all of these submissions, but this one made me tear up a little bit. So beautiful.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Please...someone tweet this to Mark May and any ESPN associates you may follow on twitter...this is awesome.

Put Mark May on the bottom.

I'm not positive but I think Mark May is wearing women's underwear under those sweatpants

Brutus' thought bubble:
Fuck, this seemed like such a good idea a few seconds ago.
Edit: I suck at photoshop, but if I didn't, I would just go with this simple image.

chitown buckeye's picture

I think brutus's thought bubble was along the lines of  "I immediately regret this decision" 

"I'm having a heart attack!"

Dunno who did the downvote but this is a wayyyyy up for me. Great job. These are all too funny.

Hahaha, I literally almost spit water all over my keyboard. The Brutus head with the harness looks hilarious!

If I could up-vote this piece of work 100 times I would. The hot dog itself deserves 50. Nice work, MOTOWN!!!!!

LOL Thanks ya sir

Hotdog mid-air for the win.

One Michigan fan is salty. This is a masterpiece.

It HAD to have been a fat fingering of an upvote.

Poison nuts's picture

I think I've upvoted almost every one today, lots of good stuff - but this is my favorite so far! Great detail on the shadows BTW...

Wait - mine is the only one with a down vote? Was unaware that Hoke was an a member of here.

Could be an offended hot dog fan?

Even a hot dog fan realizes he has to concede a few daily to Jabba the Hoke

BuddhaBuck's picture

I concede. This is incredible.
p.s. - that's a big hotdog.

Ah, possibly a case of Frankfurtenvy?

Earle's picture

Well done!  The only way this could be better is if another hotdog replaced the football.  Because seriously, would Hoke even be carrying a football if he could have a hotdog in each hand?

Doc's picture

Motown, this is the best so far.  I have no idea how to use photoshop, but yours is almost perfect.  The shadowing itself deserves a t-shirt.  Well done!

HAHA the hot dog addition took this over the top ... amazing.

Can someone please superimpose Perkins in place of Clowney when he ended the life of Vincent Smith??

I hope this continues like the BucksFan changing his icon thread.

ok I admit I'm slow . Is that a Nittany Lion? I don't get it.   This is such a great thread,thanks everyone who are artists (which is everyone not named Idaho Helga)

Colorado Buckeye's picture

Its the Ohio Bobcat mascot Rufus... who tried to take out Brutus a few years back.

OK now I get it, a wannna-be.  Thanks.

Unky Buck's picture

A little late to the party, as always...but I finally have it done. Did it in the vein of cubism and Picasso but done entirely through Photoshop. I'll post what I drew as a starting point as well to show where it went from beginning to end.

Picasso ain't got shit on me!

Unky Buck's picture


I can't get it to rotate, but you get the idea...
Edit: It didn't rotate when loaded, but has since...weird

Nice!
