ok well i love taking pictures.  i took this picture of a statue of mickey mouse and i loved the picture so much.  I took the picture, and using my photo editing software tinted the photo into 4 different colors.  i framed it in a simple black frame.  i literally did it in 15 minutes.... so simple and easy.   im going for the "u can buy this in a store" look. 

Here is a link that takes u DIRECTLY to the picture

That is really fun.

I've done something in the same style, but mine is made from handmade ... print works? ... I don't know how you call that. I made a Bob Marley rubber stencil and then you use a paint roller on the stencil and copy it as many times as you want. Here's a pic of my project (the pic quality sucks)

yes! there was a whole bunch of them like ex" halloween mickey".  i used the picture of the silver mickey because i thought it would work best with the color tinting.

did you see the elton john mickey? that one was way awesome! I tried to do what you said but then realized that I didn't really have the best software So I couldn't get the same four colors

I want to frame this now it looks so cool and way more interesting than the black and white original I took. Thanks so much for the idea I shall now use it frequently
oh and i had to come back because i forgot to say that another super fun thing to do is to turn the background of pictures to a negative while leaving the people (or whatever you want) positive. It looks very cool and I'd like to post an example of that but i don't think my friends in the picture would be too happy with me
