Un autre artiste anglais, mais des temps modernes cette fois, prénommé Steve Payne, s'est amusé à retravailler les portraits en leur en apportant une touche originale: échanger les visages des généraux par des visages de célébrités.

Parmi ces célébrités, on peut admirer Sir Sean Connery, Steve Jobs ou Al Pacino dans les habits des plus grands généraux russes victorieux de Napoléon 1er.
