Awarded the 'Cross of St. Steve' - Celebrities as Napoleonic Russian Generals



My apologies for the shameless cross-post but I thought this was just brilliant. Check out this digital artist who has done Celebrities as Napoleonic Russian Generals. These are manipulated renditions of original George Dawe portraits of 1812 Russian general officers.  I almost split my face smiling....  



Teaser: The Ian McKellan, Simon Pegg and Matt Damon portraits are brilliant (but there are many other that are very good as well).


I would pay a buck or two to have one of these done up... Hilarious.

  4. @Dave: The original portraits or the celebrities? Actually, it would be fun to see Sarko and Depardieu in this. Now, a 80's era Catherine Deneuve in a Napoleonic officer's uniform would be quite saucy...
