'The Scream' revisited!

OUT of the BOX... just Crayons Contest Entry 
The Scream is the popular name given to a composition created by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1893. ... Munch recalled that he had been out for a walk at sunset when he suddenly sensed an 'infinite scream passing through nature'.
Munch created four versions in paint and pastels, as well as a lithograph stone from which several prints survive. Both of the painted versions have been stolen, but since recovered. One of the pastel versions commanded the fourth highest nominal price paid for a painting at auction.
The second pastel version, from 1895, was sold for $119,922,600 at Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art auction on 2 May 2012 to financier Leon Black.
Modern day artists have made many versions in different styles as a homage to Mumch. Here is my own version.
I have painted this on Strathmore paper 300gsm thick using crayons only. This is my version dedicated to Edvard Munch (with due apologies)
