i'm currently painting a portrait after a few different portraits i found in the newspaper, not to make it look like anyone.

but i have the feeling this portrait is familiar somehow, like a renaissance personality or something, and can't find who it might be,

maybe someone knows? or am i just halucinating (anyway it does drive me crazy... 8O ) ?

For some reason it looks to me like a mix of Robin Williams, Adam Sandler, and Hitler... I don't know.

That looks like a cross between Jon Lovitz and an important figure in history to me!

Maybe it's the pallor, but I think Lt. Data ...
