    No worries. You're welcome if you like, but I think I'll be doing him too. I really can't pass this up.

    I'm kind of hoping someone does Cleopatra...

    The problem with doing someone like Ramses (and yeah, everyone else should read this, too), is that you'd just end up with Hapshetsut (the female pharaoh that built that giant temple, and whose son tried to scour any record of her from history, but some still got through), since as far as we know basically all the pharaohs wore the same dress, etc. (Hapshetsut even had a fake beard...) Ramses really doesn't have any items or symbols that are particular to him alone that would make him recognizable once you gender bended him. It would basically just look like a female egyptian pharoh.

    Not trying to spoil any fun, and if you managed to find a way to do it, I would certainly love to be proven wrong.

    With all respect to panda,
    Da Vinci is mine.
    It was my first thought when I read the thread topic and I'm not backing off.

    Churchill is a great choice, too, and something I thought of as well...but I'm having a tough time trying to figure out how to really tweak it and keep it period specific (late 30's thru WWII).

    In the end, though, I think I want to jump back a few centuries further, but I'd love to see someone's take on Churchill...

    I think I'll try George S. Patton.

    I have one question though, I was planning on basing it off of the opening scene from the movie Patton, is this allowed? I'm not sure since it is an actor portraying him. Either way, this will be a great learning experience

    depict: Aaaawesome. Cook is only one of the most cool people. When I was in highschool i wrote a song about him and it was forbidden from my house by my father because it was so annoying that it drove him crazy.... It was all about Cook getting cut up into pieces by Hawaiians.

    Mosthorribleyet: Nope, sorry. You have to base it off the real guy. Same goes for if anyone does Lawrence of Arabia....


    EDIT: Oh, and I just thought. Let's keep it to people who are dead, folks. (For example, i just thought that doing Winters (as seen in band of brothers) would be awesome, but realised it would be weird since he's still alive... )

    However, the two that stuck out most in my mind, if you want to go the warrior-princess route, were Ghengis Khan and Attila the Hun...would love to see two strong Frazetta-style Amazonian warrior ladies gender-bent from their original source material...
    MMmmm maybe you are right Madhatter ,what if i do a female William Wallace? daets?

    Hmm. Could be difficult, but doable, I guess. Try to find more resources than 'Braveheart', though.

    Aw, Winston Churchill was the first I thought about too. *lol* Would be so fun to do him as a lady.

    I have to think about it though, I've been thinking about Albert Einstein and Andy Warhol as well.

    I have to look at some pictures before I decide though. ^^

    OK, I'm doing Oscar Wilde. It was him or Aleister Crowley from the late Victorians, but I recently did Crowley. Although Joan of Arc would have been cool, but as madhatter106 points out, she presents not much in the way of novelty when turned into man!

    Catatafish - Nice start. I'd narrow the composition a bit and pull it down, unless you're going to fill it with bits and bobs.

    Daestwen - Are you into Egyptian stuff then?

    Edit: Ms Wilde. Went for a traditional portrait look with this one, as most of the images of Wilde are just that. It's a bit dark, I think, so I might play around with it if I get time.

    The obvious choice for me would be Jack the Ripper.
    I doubt I will have the time to do this though

    Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were two others I had considered, but I couldn't figure out how to make a female Henry not too much like Elizabeth, and vice versa.

    Though I suppose you could gender-bend Henry VIII and show all six of her husbands - that might be going above and beyond, but would be hysterically funny if done right...

    Daestwen: Haha I feel for your father, sounds like a cheerful song lol.

    Posh Spice: Nice choice! Oscar Wilde has definitely got some feminine qualities going on! Look forward to seeing you work your magic.


    Here goes a quick WIP, me getting to know my characters facial characteristics before I do the gender bending!!!!!! This is going to be fun!

    nah i dont think they'd look to similar
    i mean King Henry was a rather...large man. haha and there facial features are very different structures

    that would be fantastic if i had time for that...

    edit:
    will post sketch/WIP later

    If I did not one, but two... and they were Laurel and Hardy, would it fit the topic? They died in '57 and '65, but most of their movies were in the '30's (some in the early '40's ).

    ....?

    Have fun with Laurel and Hardy, that was one of my first thoughts.

    I think I've settled on Douglas Macarthur.
