I bought a fake nose and chin... before the Van Gogh challenge ended and I realized that I probably could have Liquified me into my "bad side".

What says you, Site Council?

Could I have done this legally with Liquify?

Anyway... it was a fun shoot.

I figured out something while shooting alone (again) today. I used the remote shutter trigger that requirses manual focus to be set on the camera... and while I was "posing", I shifted just slightly more toward the camera for each click... so I could get one in focus.
(I hoped.) In the past, I took a shot... adjusted the manual focus (looking at nothing) then shot again... and repeated until I either gave up or lucked upon it.

It was surprisingly hard to get the nose and chin to be profiled and still see my eyes.

*sigh*
And then to match the skin tone of the plastic... *sigh yet one more time*

I hope you like it!

It's... uhh... growing on me. :D

OH! And... what I really love about last minute entries (#procrastination)... (there's less than two hours until rollover...
Yes, I am aware that I had an entire TWO WEEKS to shoot and have waited until the last evening) *sigh*... is that I don't have to wait long for scoring. *sigh again*

Bring it.

Ha!

My fortune-telling ratio is definitely on the up ;-) Great take, Lydia. As Penny says... the eyes have it.
