Wow this is amazing, love the pic as a whole but especially love the way in which you've done his hair, - you are seriously artistic  Smiley
I bet if he saw it he'd want you to recreate it for him  Smiley

Just have to add, despite being middle-aged, i'm not a Lambert fan either Cheesy

That is awesome! You so totally rock.  (I actually really like Adam's new cd.  I thought I might hate it but it's great to work out too. ) I love the blues in the hair and the metallic threads. I think it may even be worthy of bringing certain words back from the nineties. This is totally rad.

It seriously rocks, but my only question is this: how did you "color in" his face? Did you use chalk or dye or something else? It looks great!

great job! Not a fan of him but you captured him very well, I knew who it was straight away. I definitely love the color and border around him, the music notes & guitars are a perfect touch. I am sure your mom will go crazy over it!

VERY well done! I like how you added the painting as well. I'm impressed!

Fantastic !!!

That is awesome, especially how you painted his face.  I have a few artist friends and know that faces can be pretty difficult to get right, but you managed to get his pretty well!  (Like, really talented friends can't draw faces to save their lives, lol.) 

Major props!  This rocks, indeed.  Cheesy

Even though I'm not middle aged, I do love Adam. You could also say I'm completely obssesing over him. I'm so jealous of your mum right now. The portrait totally (glam)rocks  Smiley
You did a fantastic job on capturing Adam.
