I had this idea for some unique artwork, the idea was to get an image of action man in the style of
Roy Lichtenstein. My sons girlfriend is at uni and offered to try and create an image from one of
my photographs using photoshop, the idea was to then paint it onto canvas. The image she created is
excellent so i had it printed 30cm x 40cms at a cost of £8.00. It saved me a lot of time and trouble
not having to paint it and looks great framed up. In my opinion it's a great way to display your
pictures plus you have something unique. I will get a green beret and canadian mountie done at some
point or perhaps four different pictures on the same print. Hope you all like it as much as myself.
Hanging it my living room is going to be my next mission, impossible me thinks lmao.

Combining VAM and Pop art, two great icons of an era is a brilliant idea and it's been executed really well too! I'm sure once you explain all this to Mrs Reddagon she'll not hesitate to let you hang it in the living room! lol!

It's very impressive RD & a clever idea to boot. The living room idea isn't so clever though unless you wait till her eyesight fades back & then tell her it's Gareth Edwards on his stag night.
I agree with Slack btw, A 1st issue mountaineer, mm mm!

Since your original pic is so sharp and nice and I was bored I
sketched it on fotoflexer to see what came out... Hope you don't mind...

Not near as good as your painting though.... Great job was done!  cheers

Good to see this thread again.

Cheers SKJ, it did not get hung in the living room sadly as the F.P.O said no Sad . Number three son is moving out soon so i have a great spot for it in the spare bedroom, a big lock from B&Q for the door and job done bounce bounce bounce
