What a character and I much prefer this background Janet ..... although maybe the vignette is a teensy bit heavy? Lol but I'm a nit-picky old Brummie tart this evening Smile

There's something very familiar about his face that I can't quite put my finger on .... is it Billy Connelly he looks like or maybe someone else? It'll come to me I'm sure.

Funny you should say that, Dave, that was my first thought when I see it - Billy Connelly.

Quote:Billy Connelly.

It's the facial hair that makes him look like Billy Connelly methinks.He looked very slightly oriental this chap without his glasses on.

This is definately a better shot. The background suited well for retro look portrait. Detail on person's face so accurate. Colours beautiful well done.
