So excited this is doing well!
Appreciate nice comments and high score, and thank you for the fave, Ammie!
Secret here is simple: find a beautiful girl with gorgeous hair and and an awesome assistant who will not mind holding the flash under different angles while the girl draws straight for 5-10-15 times...
Thank you, Kristin and Aaron! :-)

----------------------
Yay!! Looks like it was the right choice! :-)
Here are few outtakes:

---------------------
Since some of you asked how it was done, I just wanted to show the original to prove that it's all about the girl:

I just cropped and rotated it, liquified one strand of hair little bit, and overlayed one of textures of my favorite skeletalmess (introduced by Wendy):

Was slightly concerned with the texture having those white speckles, that looked like bubbles, but Robert 30861.gif Bear_Music reassured me that it's ok. :-)

Congrats on blue. I wanted to try this but as usual, did not have anyone around to pose and help. Being on my own when it comes to shooting, is a challenge in itself. I admire photographers who can shoot like this.

Hair, hair everywhere but not one strand to spare! This is my very favorite. Would not change a thing. I gave a 10. You must share how this was constructed.
