"He was smiling... That's right. You know, that, that Luke smile of his. He had it on his face right to the very end. Hell, if they didn't know it 'fore, they could tell right then that they weren't a-gonna beat him. That old Luke smile. Oh, Luke. He was some boy. Cool Hand Luke. Hell, he's a natural-born world-shaker."
-Dragline, from Cool Hand Luke

Normally don't post photoshops...but the subject is particularly important to me and I don't have the artistic talent to approach it seriously with a pencil. I tooled around a lot with achieving a painted look using a screen shot from the movie. Photoshop filters were not much help on there own (are they ever?) but with enough layers and enough tweaks I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. He will be missed.
