ghdjhf created a hilariously addictive tumblr stream called “replaceface” where he takes the portrait work of English artist, George Dawe, and replaces the faces over over 329 Russian generals who were active during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia for the Milityary Gallery of the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg (Russia) with faces of his friends, family and in some cases, celebrities.
ngjfkf uses photoshop for his replaceface work – we are impressed with how seamless the superimposed work is – the colours remain at the same saturation levels, careful attention is paid to lighting and the backgrounds are not affected by delicate strands of hair. Oh, and the best part? The faces all appear as though they were painted along with the original. We love stumbling across a face we recognize that is paired with an incredibly classical bust – a comical juxtaposition that makes us say WHOA!
