Well, on Getbig just about anything goes. I am posting this because on Ironage they don't approve of photos of bodybuilders that have been altered. I put this photo up but later deleted the thread because two moderators complained. What bothers me is I have improved Zane's physique by modifying a previous Photoshop that had gone too far. I put Frank on One Mile Beach at Forster, in NSW. I even sent the photo to Frank but it was returned saying he didn't accept mail from people he didn't know. LOL! He was at my place in Manly in the late seventies with Robert Nailon. I had a penthouse then on the 15th floor overlooking Queenscliff Beach in the northern Suburbs of Sydney.

Anyway, it took me over 2 days to complete this composition. Very tricky getting the shadow to look credible. I consider this a work of art and not a Photoshopped exaggeration.

Intense schmoeing at an advanced aged is not what is going to make you look less creepy, Vince.

How this came about was something Frank said to me about 35 years ago at my place. Frank was waiting with Robert Nailon and when I arrived the very first thing Frank said was, "You don't have to go to Disneyland." I asked him why. "Because you have been in Fantasyland all your life!" Somehow I didn't laugh and we really didn't get along that day. He wasn't this great intellect that I was looking forward to meeting. He made the remark because he read the story I wrote after winning the Mr Canada title in 1970 where I said my ambition was to beat Frank Zane. Who knows, had I gone to live in LA instead of Sydney I might have found the motivation to train hard enough to improve and compete against some of the top guys. Trouble was, I wasn't keen on doing any Deca Durabolin and that is what most of the champs were using in those days.

Anyway, I put myself on One Mile Beach after taking a great photo of that beach last year. Then I looked for a double biceps photo of Frank so I could compare how we looked. I had to reverse his photo to suit the light that day.

Here is my version on being on that beach.

I bet Vince Basile's wife is happy with him spending countless hours on photoshopping the shadows of his favorite muscle man's muscles.

Vince why did you not want to use Deca back in the day? Were there not enough other options to help build a great physique with? Is that the way you really looked in the pic? Nice art work.
