Ming the Merciless

I was experimenting with a new (to me) technique for copying from a photo. I started out zoomed way, way out and slowly worked my way in, adding more detail with each pass. I totally botched the angle of his head and the gun. I'm not sure how I managed to change the perspective from the source photo, but I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out for a first effort.

Painted in the gimp on a fujitsu stylistic st5112 with minor color adjustments/grain effects added using g'mic plugin.
