Very dramatic! If you do another version, I could see the crime scene tape as her prom queen ribbon, like where she's wearing the crime scene tape...

Tell you what, we'll trade ideas because I think I want to do something with the idea you gave me about the kid running off the cliff with the airplane, so the crime scene idea is all yours!

Somebody get that hysterical bitch out of this crime scene! I love tragic paintings, they make me laugh.

Lovely cameo border. I would have used brighter prom colors, at least for the dress. A bright pink for the dress and a little trail of blood coming down from the temple. Oh and the mascara should run a little, because of the water works and all. Your picture set my imagination ablaze, kinda like the car.

This one brand new or old?

I agree it seems it must be a story behind this piece. Who was in the car? Mmm... I guess we'll never know! I love the frame and the fire... it's so hard to draw fire! Great expression on the character's face, as usual!

Dave! I'm having a hard time putting my finger on this. I've been sitting here, mesmerized by this for 15 minutes, and I'm aware that there must be a story behind it. The prom queen with the baby's face... wow!
