I was wondering if this person is physical counterpart of Winston Churchill, or someone who filled a similar role? I would assume the latter, but have been wrong before. Zahir 08:02, 3 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I regard him as a Winston Churchill, not necessarily as the Winston Churchill. I know some people would like an English Winston Churchill as well. This is not unusual, try doing a count of the Clintons in IB - AndrewSmith

How about [1] as a photo of Mr. Brecryg? Celeste Lavender 11:35, 17 December 2015 (PST)

Sounds good to me. I suggest we facemash M. Sykes with the real-life Winston Churchill (or perhaps someone else, just a suggestion... maybe King George VI?), though. That way there's more difference. Juan Martin Velez Linares 09:12, 18 December 2015 (CST)
Just my personnal taste but I have always preferred when having a stand-in was to modified the appearance of the inspiration for it instead of picking someone at random.

That appearance does look unique. But maybe pick a less "iconic" picture so the base is less recognisable? Celeste Lavender 13:22, 18 December 2015 (PST)

Maybe edit a younger picture of Mr. Churchill? How about this one? [2]. What would be done is to edit it to make him appear older, but perhaps keep his hair and his weight? That way Mr. Brecryg can look less "Churchill", but still have the connection! Celeste Lavender 13:25, 18 December 2015 (PST)

the only problem in my mind with the later is that the picture in question is clearly of a much earlier vintage then the 1940s but I think you're right about using a less iconic picture.--Marc pasquin 19:51, 18 December 2015 (PST)

Hmm... [3], with consoderable editing? Celeste Lavender 09:22, 19 December 2015 (PST)

What about this instead ? --Marc pasquin 08:14, 20 December 2015 (PST)

Well, the only difference there seems to be only the eyebrows... --Celeste Lavender 12:25, 21 December 2015 (PST)

A bit more elaborate, eyeborws, thinner face, higher nose, flap above eye removed giving him bigger eyes.--Marc pasquin 17:54, 21 December 2015 (PST)

Could you thin the face a bit more, and maybe make more hair there if it's possible? Sorry if I sound pernickety. --Celeste Lavender 18:10, 21 December 2015 (PST)

I think the one on the left works just fine in terms of facial structure. But yes, I do think it would be prudent to give him more hair. Winston Churchill with hair would quite possibly be the funniest differences between *here* and *there*. (Even if he's not exactly Winston Churchill, I still think it's a suitably horrifying effect. Don't forget to sleep, kids, or Winston Churchill With Hair will come into your house and give a long, well-written speech about how it would be prudent for post-war Cambria to heed the evils of Snorism!)
