The Spawning Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

Time to scare the pants off each other! Pick a neutral (non-scary) portrait photo of a human or animal and make the face look scary. Think what would be really frightening for you (personal opinion: gore like in slasher movies is not really scary) and visualize that in your entry.

Whatever you do, the base of your entry has to be a portrait photo, it can not be only made in 3D or as digital drawing. So organize a horrormovie marathon to spice up your imagination and come up with your scary face! Good luck!

Required level: 5+ or higher.
Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

original photo is from my own stock. see sbs step 1 for uncut photo.

**EDIT** since pre-made brushes like the hair brush i used in my original piece are not allowed in photoshop contests, i hand painted the hair using only standard photoshop round brushes. please see sbs for updates!!!

when this circus rolls into town, the people are filled with fear...
Mr BigTop, in his glory, greets them at the gates...
"Popcorn, Freakshows, three rings full of fun all right here!"
Flashing his smile as he stares with blank eyes.....

and as the sun sets, from miles around, silence is broken by the towns-people's terrified cries. (5 years and 1560 days ago)
