Lena by AndyFairhurst Lena by AndyFairhurst
Lena Headey, because she effin' rocks!

I'm not too happy about the likeness, the fact I have applied blue lips and skin tones and heavy make-up etc might have detracted from a normal likeness maybe but I am sure I haven't quite got her eyes right. I may correct this but I will leave it for now to get a fresh look on it later on. I am happy with the overall image though :D

Painted in Photoshop CS5

Thanks for looking

Changed the bg to a lighter tone as I think that black bg oppressed the image

Further altered her face shape as it was too long and angular.

Accurate enough I recognized who it was, as soon as I saw the title,  knowing it wasn't just a random name for a random portrait. Great work!

I think the shape of her head from about right under her eyes down is just a tad too thick. The cheek bones do jut out the way you have them, but I think the overall size is just a bit too wide. The width of the bridge of her nose might be just a touch too thick as well.

With that said, you've nailed the eyes, and she is easily identifiable from your image. I love the colors and textures you have going on in this.

Very nice work. Love Lena.

As long as you can tell who it is it's fine. I saw the tile and the mini-picture that comes with the messages and I knew who it was. It's fine :)
