This was a real fun picture to work on, I learned a lot about photoshop. If I gave it a round two it would look a lot better, but I am very pleased with this one. I hadn't originally intended for this to be an animated gif, but was struck with the idea half way through. I now think that that's the best part of this image.
Also, this looks just like me. Well, a little fatter, but just as regal.
