All Kings is Mostly Rapscallions

“This is my favorite picture of my dad (and his dog, Wofford) — it was featured on the cover of a magazine back in the late 1930s.”

  1. I just don’t understand mod blog. There is tons of good and exciting work beign uploaded to bmezine everyday. But this is the garbage that continues to be featured on modblog.

  2. I’ve got to agree with knifefight. The faces on the boy and dog both really bother me. Other than that it looks great and the idea is awesome.

  3. Hmmm, I really really like this. I think I’ve seen so many attempts at a photorealistic portrait that come off badly that taking a more ‘anime-ish’ approach seems to be so much more appropriate to the medium. And surely the haters should see the original picture before passing judgement – I mean a photo from the 30s was probably massively airbrushed to the point where it looked similar to this anyway.

    Just sayin’…

  4. I like this :)

    I have a tattoo from Eddie and its still perfect after 12 years, he is a great artist so thats probably about what the pic looked like
