A composite inspired by the HBO series, True Detective. Ever since I first saw the opening sequence, I knew I had to try to get the effect. The key was to get a good portrait shot, have a few generic city scapes and get the colours right. Plenty of noise needed too.

Let me know what you think.

My first thought was Charles Manson . the intensity of that mad stare.
Like the way the trees are growing from the beard - well worked David.

Okay, now I've got to this in the gallery I can see the relevance of the Charles Manson/Jesus thing Grin I actually really like it - I've never seen the series, so don't know what the connection/connotations is/are, but as an image in its own right, it's stark, bleak and rather good Smile
