When I first saw this portrait, I immediately recognized it as Kat Dennings, yet something seemed slightly off about her features. Her nose, eyes, and mouth (very distinctive features) looked right. Then I figured it was just the artistic interpretation, something having to do with your particular style.

It wasn't until today that I saw you had a link to the orignal photo that you reference. Now I could see what was nagging me. Her face has been "flipped", everything now reversed as a mirror image would be. It seems like a small thing, but the differences become more apparent with a photorealistic portrait such as the one you've undertaken.

That being said, I really love the way you've painted this. Her skin appears luminescent, almost dewy, and her lips looks like they're actually stained with lip color. I like how you chose to soften the detail in her hair, so that, keeping the focus an Kat's face and striking eyes.

Great job. :)

I must say that this is an amazing feet for 3 hours! :faint:
I love how you have coloured her skin, it has a nice almost ghostly feel to it and I really like that thre is only a slight hint of light in the eyes, just enough to add character but not so much that retracts from the pieces feeling over all.
