This is the 1st time I have only been able to restore half a face. I could find no image on the other side, so it would not have been a true image if I hade made it up. It may be that a restorer on here has a more up to date programme than mine and can find more to restore.
Sorry!!

I don't usually do these restores as the file size is really much smaller than the average avatar but I felt sorry for him and am trying to take my mind off a dental appointment  :-\
