Gut und Blut fur unsern Kaiser by Kaiser-Conti Gut und Blut fur unsern Kaiser by Kaiser-Conti
The last grand monarch in Europe... Emperor of Austria and Apostolic King of Hungary, ruler of the multinational Austro-Hungarian Monarchy :salute:

Kaiser Franz Joseph

Czech: František Josef (aka "Starej Procházka" )
Hungarian: Ferenc József
Polish: Franciszek Józef
Croatian: Franjo Josip
Slovenian: Franc Jožef
Slovak: František Jozef
Friulian: Francesc Josef
Italian: Francesco Giuseppe
Romanian: Francisc Iosif
Serbian: Фрањо Јосиф (Franjo Josif)
Ukrainian: Франц Йосиф

It took me a couple of hours...at the end I've played a little bit with contrast/brightness slide controls to make it similar to a photo

damn proud of it..even if it's not the whole picture...my scanner is smaller than the original size of this work..and I don't have a digital camera :P

He looks very honest and nice, for some reason, and I like the way his moustache smiles:)

Portret imponujacy... Lubie jak w rysunku jest kontrast miedzy kolorami (w tym wypadku czernia i biela). Godne dodania do ulubionych.

Swoja droga, pomyslec ze kazdy z kim bojowalem w journalach zostal zinfiltrowany przezemnie, kazdemu galerie odwiedzilem co bym wiedzial z kim walcze a twoja odwiedzialem dopiero jak komentarz przeczytalem...

Awesome! Really catches the atmosphere of an old photograph.
Little tip: Manipulating the colours to more sepi-like pattern and adding some style filters in Photoshop should even boost the 'old photo effect'.

All the other monarchs in Europe are posers. Franz Joseph was the true monarch of them all. Glory to the Habsburg Emperor!
