this is amazing! love the concept, and the accuracy. a little dissapointed about the pixelly ness, but that is simply the style and i have no real reason to complain. I'll admit, it wasn't a lot of impact for me, and as far as the technique goes i think you used the copy and paste buttons. But that's cool, i could never do this. it is also a pure original, and took a lot of vision. As far as things i liked, i liked how you did the face, but the forehead is rather large, even for ol' abe. Good job overall.
What do you think?

I personally like this one a lot better than the Ben Franklin piece. I think it has something to do with the round pennies all over creation. I guess it is just more visually appealing to me. Although I can defiantly see why you got a Daily Deviation on the Ben Franklin piece. Well done and keep up the good work.

Thank you! I agree, I like this one better also. I guess Ben was just at the right place at the right time! My own personel favorite is Wille Nelson Revisted. I guess it's just a matter of taste.
