I have no idea how this will do. Yes, under all the editing, it is me. My nod (and apologies) to Picasso.

The hardest thing was the hair. Each curl is a separate layer :-)

Yes, Ryan, this DID start out as a photograph :-) I did draw in the curls, the eyelashes (oh, vanity!), and the outline. Everything else was first a photograph. I was going for a cubist/Picasso sort of thing and got this instead. But I suspect that many voters share your sentiment, which is reflected in the score. I don't care. I LOVE my new avatar :-)

Oh Johanna Johanna... Such a brave and hilarious entry :)
Esteem, much esteem...
I'm so curious to see the photograph behind. And I'm even more curious at which point you started going crazy like this :)
Nobody can't deny that now you have the most flashy avatar of all :)

does not seem photographic in nature, as much as a drawing with some teeth and a bit of neck added in for texture.
