Thank you all very much for the great response.

Andy - Yes, it's all Photoshop. I did it in greyscale first, then added colours - Not a technique I use often, but it seems to have worked okay.

the scratchy technique was perfect for this subject.

great tribute

Yes, I thought something a tad rougher would be appropriate for Mr Postlethwaite.

Cheers, Will.
