Portraits in Milan

There was a lot of artwork on the walls of the Sir James Henderson School in Milan this week, But the self-prtraits as nobles of the middle ages really grabbed me. Having photos for the faces really made them look real. This looks like a great project to do. Maybe it helps that the faces kind of resemble the faces that you find in renaissance paintings. Maybe the thing to do would be to find the right time and place in history to take a portrait from that will fit your face. The first thing that comes to my mind is how Wayne Rooney would look good as King Henry VIII, so I did a mashup photo. See what you think?
