This picture was created using an entire chapter text from the novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
by Jules Verne, and is based off of a photo of James Mason, the actor for Captain Nemo in the Disney film adaption of the book.
Just to inform anyone who feels that this image may violate copyright laws for the text, all of Jules Verne's works are now public domain. So, this image is perfectly acceptable for at least its non-profit viewing here on deviantART, unlike most of my other artwork done in this style.
I wish I could show some of that here, but I'm sure those texts are copyrighted . . .
