I decided to replace George Washington, one of our most overrated (but still good) presidents, with musician Wesley Willis. I thought about putting my own pic up there, but I didn't have any appropiate ones for this, and besides, I'm not good looking enough.
I copied and pasted Wesley's head on top of George's and transformed it until it was a good size.
I added a Levels layer to Wesley (RGB 27, 1, 195; Red 0, 1, 216), a Brightness/Contrast layer (Brightness +42, Contrast +25) and a Hue/Saturation layer (Hue -180, Saturation -51). That made the shadows stand out and gave a bluish cast.
Then I copied the Wesley layer, added an Emboss filter (I knew I would eventually find a practical use for that thing!) and knocked the layer opacity down to 35%. I smudged the neck to make it blend in.
Oh, and I was kidding about George being overrated. I am perfectly aware that he was our first and only six-star general, and that the origins of limited terms and peaceful transfer of power lie with him. But compared to Jefferson, Teddy, and Lincoln, well, he was just the first president, that's all.
