very interesting concept, not excluding the original intent of copying the artist, you have also created a pieta, so you have honored 2 artists, so many guys who do male work just take posed photos, you have created something emotive which is lacking in so many other sites art, good work and best wishes red

I had absolutely no idea this was a photo manipulation until I saw the category. It's fantastic! It really looks like a really nice digital painting - nearly traditional, too. :+favlove: This is great.
