Gimp, bitches.

However, I took that one using an in-camera, cheesy, sepia effect. Gimp was just for cropping out the rest of the face.

    Hey, Fuse, this time it is not so easy, is it? But until now you lie in front with your answer!

    I think Mags is browsing the entire forum in order to win, because she wants to get flowers.

    Hi xzc, if you want my opinion -- since i don't like beards anyway, get rid of most of it and just leave a little stubble. It'll make you look a bit rugged and with those beautiful blue eyes of yours - really very very nice. Oh, I just saw the image on the right. So more like that one.

    The stubble is a good idea. It has all the benefits of me still doing this

    Well, THAT is not just stubble and that's a scary creature. :lol:
    Anyway, you don't look homeless in the left image.

    This is stubble - well, maybe a little less than that. I hate too hairy! You can't really pull stubble, xzc :mrgreen:
