Well, why so serious?

It's was an image I started for another thread and got carried away. I don't know if it's impressive, but it's not a photo. It's all hand done in GIMP with standard (stock) brushes.

The reference image I used from here.

And the font is by Nate Piekos.

This is how I accomplished the task.

(One note, I had my reference image underneath the layer I worked on in GIMP and I traced that reference image for the initial outline and other features. It took me nearly 15 hours, over two or so days, to complete.)

What do you think?
