Below left is the original drypoint drawing, and below right is our altered version, with the 5 things that we changed circled in red. From left, we have:

  1. Some of the wrinkles have been removed from his forehead.
  2. We added some wrinkles to the left of his eye.
  3. We removed some wrinkles from his nose.
  4. We added hair and made it longer on this side of his head.
  5. We added some extra wrinkles to his neck.
