Very happy with this score! I thought it would do well, but didn't think it would be where it was!

Incidentally, no cropping was done to the image. It looks better in full resolution cause you can see the facets in the eyes. I could have cropped them in, but i thought the composition and light was better. It would almost have given a sense of beauty and delicacy to the image too, which I certainly didn't want!

Ugly, isn't he?

Here's the image without any textures

Oddly compelling! Great use of the muted color scheme and grungy texture overlay.
