A friend of mine commissioned me to paint her a candy skull girl. I hadn't painted or drawn anything like it before and had tons of fun! She is painted with acrylics on a 16" x 20" canvas and took about 15 hours (including drawing the concept out on paper first). After she was done I jazzed her up with some paper flowers and butterflies.

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

Underneath Judge Dredd's helmet is another helmet?

Nice overall design and the addition of the paper flowers/butterflies really enhances the composition.  Your half-and-half approach to her features reminds me strongly of the Batman villain, Two-Face.
