Great job! Nice blending. Great photo choice.I love doing these myself.

The only thing that I noticed, was that the poster has more of an airbrushed look to it. I hope you don't mind, but I ran a couple filters on this to see if I could make you look more airbrushed.
This is what I came up with.

Thank you all for all those warm messages, I am glad everyone smiled I know I needed that myself

On Rick's font question:
As you may know there are many Font Families and Styles, two of the main ones are Serif fonts (Times, Palatino, Bodony.. etc) and Sans-Serif fonts (Verdana, Helvetica.. etc) I started to compare the characters and proportions till I found a close match then stretched it horizontally to match the original look.

For Mig:
Thank for the tip, I’ll be glad to see your examples too if possible, I promise I wouldn't check the nude ones heheh my email is

For Vikki:
Thanks a million, you did a great job although my eyes are originally hazel not that dark, but I look nice airbrushed too

Have a lovely day you all

Nice touch you did there with the getting rid of the glare. What filters did you use?

I was going to try to use some fo the techiques that were used in the restoration books.

Very nice and these sorts of things are cool. Some programmer friends and I like to do this sort of thing and some of them know the basics of photoshop. Anyhow you should find one that one of these guys did of me, it was really funny!!
