Famous Celebrities As Old Russian Generals

Famous Celebrities As Old Russian Generals

Incorporate old paintings of Russian generals and a bunch of famous celebrities. This is what you will get. Creative and hilarious.

Putting celebrity heads on Russian generals is all UK artist Steve Payne’s idea. More correctly, he is photoshopping their heads onto torsos of the generals. Heads of Bill Murray, Elijah Wood, Steve Jobs, Daniel Craig, Al Pacino, and many more. The original paintings though are painted by English portraits artist George Dawe which made about 300 portraits in his time. They show Russian generals that had fought Napoleon in the Patriotic War in 1812. The artist has a great tip on head swapping; He says: “The most important things to consider are anatomy, perspective and lighting.

If you can get those things right, you’re more than halfway there”. Great and fun art work indeed. Something similar but more modern has been done by a guy that head swapped his friends heads with celebrities on his party photos, making it look like he had a party full of famous people.
