Had this idea for a little while and finally decided to work on it, not sure if this is in the right spot or deserving of its own post, apologies if not.

Thought everyone might get a kick out of this, as well as had the idea of getting it framed with a little name plaque at the bottom and mailing it to the crew. Though not sure how that would fly.

Again sorry if this is wrong first time posting here...

Edited in the newer image now.

Not to worry duder, we love photoshops here at Giant Bomb! Nice work.

Oh hey cool! Awesome. He looks like he would command a mean army in Civ, or something.

Good job.

I was hoping they'd put up a photo of Ryan on the live set (where black and white creepy Jeff is currently framed).

This would be perfect.

#6 Posted by Rexcellent (11 posts) -

Yea that was kind of the idea for where it would be, on that back wall there of the live set.

Fight the good fight,General Davis. Your battle in the Netherealm will save us all.

I would serve as a minion under General Davis any day.

Nice work! What is the original image?

You did a very good job. If you could get a nice big print of it, I bet they'd love it.

#14 Edited by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

Wow, that's awesome.

@truthtellah: Original images are old paintings of Russian generals by a George Dawe then just going thru images on the website here looking for decently lit headshots.

Idea isn't too original sadly since some dude does this with celebrities but I thought I would give it a shot myself.

You might want to put a layer of cream color or yellowish-gray over his head and multiply it to around 7-12%. Right now the face is sticking out too much from the rest of the portrait. Try to blend it into the tones of the actual painting. Otherwise, awesome.

#18 Posted by TruthTellah (8781 posts) -

@rexcellent: Well, I really dig it. You should send it to the guys. (even if you just send them a print or the image)

Great idea! When he denounces you, it should read "You are a human piece of shit!". Also, should generate extra culture for being King of the Summer Jams.

#25 Posted by probablytuna (3614 posts) -

I would buy that as a poster.

#26 Posted by ch3burashka (5040 posts) -

That's amazing. He'd be proud.

That's a fucking fantastic idea.

Greetings to you, General Ryan T. Davis, King of the Summer Jams... somethingsomething build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

I would hang that on my wall!

#30 Posted by Landon (4138 posts) -

That's pretty amazing.

#31 Edited by Brackynews (4060 posts) -

@rexcellent: Fanfuckingtastic work duder. Very few things make me say "oh Jesus Christ" exactly the way Ryan said it.

But it's 4am and now I have to go to sleep with that on my conscience.

I feel like I could promise you that would make it up on the standing set art wall. I can't, but send it.

#32 Posted by Skrams (271 posts) -

That's pretty fucking cool which also gave me an idea that I just wanted to write down so hopefully someone steals it and makes something amazing. A reworked version of "The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries" but with Ryan would be kind of amazing.

#33 Posted by Fattony12000 (7298 posts) -

I am going to make that a new civ in Civ V.

Vive l'Generalissimo! Vive la Taswellia! Vive l'Empire!

#34 Posted by kristov_romanov (458 posts) -

I'd happily be oppressed under the regime of that dictator.

You've done good lad, you've done good.

#38 Posted by The_Reflection (245 posts) -

#41 Posted by MocBucket62 (1199 posts) -

This is brilliant! This is worthy to be in a museum.

#42 Posted by MachoFantastico (4615 posts) -

Beautiful!

That as to go up in a golden frame on set, just as to... we demand it. Plus I love the idea of him being the leader of his own Civilization for Civ V.

#43 Posted by churrific (478 posts) -

Nice!

#44 Posted by Ben_H (3341 posts) -

Dude that's awesome!

#45 Posted by Rexcellent (11 posts) -

Ha, well since this went over so well I will work on getting a larger print done this week and see how it looks.

#46 Edited by Fattony12000 (7298 posts) -

I want that shirt!

I know you do, and I was very lucky in being able to get a hold of one just before making a certain video! Go here to see why I had it on whilst standing in front of a video camera. By the way, you can still buy your own right here, through the official channels.

@fattony12000: please keep us up to date if you do make it a civ! :D
