Portrait of Contempt

she might have ice in her veins

Having more fun with Photoshop. I believe the photo is from Google News.
I saved it months ago because I was fascinated with her expression. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that look.

Wish I could get a job doing this all day long.

  8. Yuk, I find myself ANNOYED with people that LOOK like this! So I am wanting to know...WHAT made her look like that? I hope it was UTTER disgust and disdain over something in the world that is horrendous like abused children or the way BP is handling the oil spill!

    Have a great weekend.

  9. I know what you mean, the thing I love doing the best is playing around with my pictures making collages. At times I think that I am in the wrong line of work, but then I think that perhaps playing with photoshop all day long using not the pictures of my choice and meeting deadlines might not be that much fun either.;)
    With that said, you did a marvelous job..;)) Love it!
    Have a great weekend,

  12. I have never attempted anything in Photoshop - much too technical for me! I love what you have done here and in your previous post. Very clever. What an expression - she must have heard some very BAD news indeed!!

    I have let my grey hairs take over - it was difficult at first, in that in-between stage, but now everyone loves it and several people have asked me if my hair is highlighted! So long as you have a good modern cut (which you undoubtedly have) then you have no worries. Just look at Dame Judi Dench - she looks wonderful!

    Oh and a very happy belated Birthday!

  19. Looks like you are really having a 'creative day' with what you do with Photoshop. I haven't learned to do much with it yet.

  20. Is it not exciting to learn Photoshop? And since you are creative in the first place--all the better. You could earn a living that way some day???

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
