My mother has loved the movie Edward Scissorhands since it was first released in theatres, so I was seeing this face since before my mind even began to register why there was creepy pale man with purple lips on my TV screen. In middle school I wanted to draw the movie cover, thinking his reflection in the sheers would be utterly fantastic to draw. But I decided to wait until my drawing skills improved (thank goodness) and ended up picking a different reference. I know that everyone and their mother has drawn this picture, but I thought that would be a poor reason for not using the reference I really preferred. I liked his expression - you can't really tell if he's smiling or just bemused by something. Maybe it's both.
