    Ok, my dad used to be a rocker. I found an old picture of his band. Hehe (They were glam rockers essentially).

    It had been eaten by rats though.... I decided to surprise him by restoring it so here it is.

    It is definitely not perfect... but I like it a lot and so does he.

    Nice touch! Your effort definitely made your pop proud, I'm sure. I'm just curious: which of the members is your dad?

    I do have some suggestions for your next restoration project. First, try to fill in as much of the gaps as possible. You've already started with the leftmost person by "completing" his hair (which was badly eaten by rats in the original). You could have improved the face of the person at the center, by supplying an eyebrow.

    Then again, it's the thought that counts, I guess.

    Thanks for the tips. I actually went in and did some more improvements later. The member 2nd from the left is my dad. Haha. He looks like my brother. :P

    Wow! the restoration looks great! Funny that the rodents didn't touch your dads face, like it was protected

    Woof! *fans self* Love me some sexy rockers.
    I pack two things wherever I go: A gun and a camera. You probably don't want to end up in front of either one.

    Hi Impression

    I thought it would be fun to see what could be done with this image!

    I love your edit, and became very-much familiar with all the hurdles you had to jump over in order to bring your edit as far as you did!

    The thing with the eye was a fairly detail oriented fix. I knew better than to try and create one from scratch but I did grab the band members left eye (their left :^)
    and flipped it, then set it in place... with a lot of fine-tuning.

    Tons of really tight cloning was necessary to fill-in and build on the available patterns. Overall, a fascinating adventure! Thanks!
