Vincent van Gogh Loves Dollar Shave Club

This semester we have a fun assignment for our Photoshop class, which is to pick an artwork from an old master and re-dress the person in the painting. I chose one of Vincent van Gogh's self-portrait because I'm always in love with his works and his passion about art (Who isn't I mean?) 

So first of all, this is the original painting:

And then this is my interpretation:

So I imagined van Gogh shaving his beard using the razor from Dollar Shave Club. This idea came quickly, I guess it's because I've been watching their commercial on TV and thought it's funny, plus their packaging seems nice. I'm also secretly hoping this work could bring me some advertising jobs!

Below are some screenshots of my work in progress. 

 Always blocking out the big colors first, the details come later.

 I was thinking about icing on the cake when I was painting the foam, lol
