I had fun with this one. I'm sure there will be plenty of creative faceless portraits out there. I wanted to push the limits of the description by actually taking just a facial portrait and attempt to almost all of the features of the face, with the exception of the eyes and some texture. I hope it is accepted well. This is one of those entries that I am feeling really good about, which means it will probably tank, but that's OK.

Oh, and by the way, it is a self-portrait.

Almost creepy, but very effective!

Oops! There's a whole lot of face showing here. It's a very intense and interesting image, I'll give it that. :) The challenge is to "show us the essence of a person" without showing their face. Disregarding the face issue, what does 'The Enthusiast' mean? I'm really not trying to be a smart aleck here...just giving some feedback on what questions this photo raises when I look at it. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

Glad I didn't send my other photo, it looks a bit the same but different :)
But why does it show her face so clearly?

I like the stripes on the forehead moving in the opposite direction of those on the sleve. Nice Touch.
