my favorite of the 'here's johnny' entries in the challenge. i think it's the expression and resemblance to jack that makes it special.

The best of the The Shining entries. Your model even looks like Nicholson. The sharp canines, the stubble and teh wild look in the eyes are perfect. The lighting is perfect. The focus may be a little soft, but I can live with it.
