Sorry, to post so soon... I have been thinking and was looking at images of Emma Smith and starting laughing at what I discovered when I compared her photographs (starting to work on drawing her), to paintings done by Sutcliff Maudsley...
I've had one very adamant critic, an archivist with the Church History Dept., that I had chains of emails with emailed months ago, and like I said before, just got to a point where he wasn't reading anything that I emailed back. His arguments were things like- my photograph showed a man in a plaid vest and that wasn't' in style till much later, his collar is popped down- not up (must be 1850s); completely ignoring that I found a photograph of a vest that Joseph wore in an Ensign 30ish years ago, that matched exactly, ignored all the images proving that popped down collars were happenin as early as 1843; but his BIGGEST hangup was that Joseph Smith was drawn by Maudsley with what he said were clearly unattached earlobes, and he was SURE that my image showed a man with attached lobes (although I totally disagree because I see a definitely curving on the lobe, of my 1840s Illinois Man, esp. the left earlobe).
Who DOES have attached earlobes? Emma Smith... Did Maudsley draw her with attached earlobes- no, he drew her with unattached earlobes... Say, what? (facial analysis page just was updated with this...)
