Renaissance Portraits of Famous Celebs
« on: May 15, 2011, 05:47:36 AM »
For those who like art.

Not just Renaissance, actually - some paintings pastiched there date from as late as the early 19th century, but we're not going to split hairs here. I thought Robin Williams, Drew Barrymore and Hugh Laurie were particularly well done.

I thought Robin Williams and Drew Barrymore fit right in. Some of these are very well done.

There are more here, also. :)

I think Julia Roberts looked right at home.  The Madonna and Michael Jackson portraits - not so much.  I could also have seen Robin Williams as Lorenzo di Medici (they had someone named Angelo Bono in that role)

Hugh Laurie doesn't look out-of-place in the least there. You're sure that's not simply a painting of him, and that he's actually really old?

Michelle Pfeiffer and Cate Blanchett rock; Gwyneth Paltrow would have been perfect with lighter hair. But Eva Longoria... ugh, couldn't they have retouched the mouth at least?

Those were amusing, and a few of them were quite good!
