Aperture: 8.0
ISO: 100

The inspration for this pic was the David Bowie album Aladdin Sane. Explaining why I titled it a David Bowie song....even though I don't think Ziggy Stardust was on that album....oh well:)

Anyways, I think I like it, and thanks to my mom for helping me clean up the blue paint I spilled all over my carpet. Yes, it is paint, it seems to work quite well actually :) Comes off quite nicely :)

Sister Sherm, this is another fantastalistic photo from you - you rock.

I must agree with Ms Kel, you should be in pictures in printed materials make beaucoup dineros and hobnobbing with the uber-elite, not a thought nor care of us lowlies you've left behind in your march towards stardom and fame.

You da woman.

interesting, looks like there was almost a 'pull tap' on the top right of the paint job so you could easily peel the design off and use it again later.. hehe

Lovin that big hair. Girl you should be submitting your pics to a modeling agency. You have a really good look going on.

Nice finish Shermy but honestly, I expected this close to the top. Really expected a ribbon for you.
No matter. Beautiful entry, beautiful face. Nice job!

I think the red is a bit too over the top. Tone it down just a touch and this would be tres cool!

Awesome portrait, technically perfect, but the thickness of the paint (?) on the top right of the bolt is a bit clumpy and it looks a little weird around the eyebrow.

nicely done. perhaps blend the top right edge a bit more to give it less 3D texture. 8

Very nice exposure you have here - and that makes all the difference! 8
