I feel a bit like Dr. Frankentim at times when I mess about with Photoshop and animation software. To mix metaphores, sometimes it is like Forrest Gumps box of chocolates: you never know what you are going to get.
For some reason I thought it would be interesting to put my face on Rasputin's (he was a Russian mystic who was the official psychic of sorts for the Romanov dynasty and greatly influenced Nicholas and Alexandra during the end of the Russian monarchy). He was sometimes referred to as the Mad Monk. Basically he had spooky eyes.
Because he had spooky eyes, I wanted to keep that part of his face and his pretty kick ass beard. So I ended up just putting my nose and mouth on his face. The result was pretty freakish, even by my standards. It kind of looked like Donny Osmond on acid. Add a little animation and I think I've created a monster.
I kind of like it.
