Trevi Artist

I met this chap enroute to the fountain. I will show that image on friday. I have learnt not to sit for this sort of portraits as you are reminded of how funny the shape of your head may be :)

This reminds me of those memes in blogs you read, SAVO: it's fun reading everyone else's but you have no inkling to do one yourself. smile It always amazes me how these artists DO get some of the resemblance in.
SAVO: Haha, this guy was particularly good actually, he seemed to know his onions smile
Yes their skill lies in the exaggeration of features but still being recognisable!
SAVO: I agree, nut you could argue that the 'exaggeration' of features may actually be a true reflection grin

The Liza is good, I know they exaggerate, but it always have some resemblance in.
Love the B&W.
SAVO: Thanks a lot Astrid. I give the Liza 6.5/10. The Chaplin was my favorite
