My lovechild with Queen Elizabeth I

by Sally Hogshead on January 16, 2012

Queen Elizabeth I was known as “The Virgin Queen.” Yet now, ladies and gentlemen, it’s my pleasure to introduce our lovechild.

How did this Elizabethan portrait My friends Steve and Patrick took my Twitter icon, and added the Prestige trigger (along with a wallop of Photoshop sorcery).

Patrick described how he created the image: “The secret is almost do a forensic layering process – ghosting layers and changing angles so that all the facial planes are the same.” Ooooh. I think that sounds every bit as cool as it looks.

Voila! Royal fascination.

Fits your regal bearing, Sally. Do you get to keep the tiara?
