August 25, 2011 was the 62nd birthday of Gene Simmons - the blood-spitting, fire-breathing, and tongue-wagging frontman of the hard rock band Kiss. Simmons co-founded Kiss in the early 1970s, and invented the band's face makeup and stage outfits, which became the band's trademark and made Kiss one of the most recognizable bands of all times.

This image was created for an advanced Photoshop Contest at

(Contest Directions: To pay a tribute to Gene Simmons and Kiss band, give the famous Kiss makeup to any people, animals, or objects. Please note that the Kiss makeup has six versions - you are welcome to use any (or all of them), not just the Gene Simmons' face makeup.)

This image was created in Adobe photoshop using a combination of self-created art & various photo source elements.
