    You've got a real talent there.
    Your GF is quite the looker.

    So at some point John has to die so the world balances out for the rest of us, right?

    ... Right?!? :lol:

    Phew, that's reassuring :) If you really must harvest organs, uhhmm, the keyboard player in my band just got this one which is much nicer than mine:

    really nice colouring there. i like the addition of red in her hair (i guess to give a bit more depth?)...as a side note, red highlights will do her justice (although she might have already tried it, being a woman?!!! :rofl:)

    by the way : does Grattis means free? if so, nice touch!!! "free for your 20th b'day"!!!!

    Haha thanks, she actually has red highlights now :) She figures she finally has her makeup style down now, so she'll focus on the hair from now on :lol: She's thinking of getting extensions too, which could be awesome :)

    "Grattis" means congratulations, but you're not far off, as "Gratis" means free :) But you're right, it would've been a nice touch :lol:

    :lol: I'll send her your regards! :yesway:

    I re-did the colours a bit and smudged out some of the harschness from the scanner. I also have very low contrast on my laptop screen, so when I viewed the coloured version on other computers it was way too saturated. So here's the updated version:
