7.2 with 44 votes! I'm about to hyperventilate.

This is my first expert entry, and my first self portrait. I guess I can no longer use the excuse that expert challenges intimidate me.

7.049 with less then two hours to go!

For those interested, here is the original before I started warping it.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/125000-129999/128201/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1000626.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/125000-129999/128201/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1000626.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I look pretty strange in the original image too. I tried to contort my face as much as possible to match the following image. Pulling off a smile with only my upper teeth showing is apparently very difficult.

If people are interested I can make a full tutorial on the processing steps. Just let me know and I'll try to throw something together.

Well done on your 1st ribbon. I didn't have this pegged for one although I gave it an 8.
"If people are interested I can make a full tutorial on the processing steps. Just let me know and I'll try to throw something together." > I'm sure SC would be interested considering your yellow. :)

Neat, and to make yourself look like 'ol Alfred, now that's some weird 5#!7.
