I'd say she's probably the person I've found most difficult to get a decent likeness of so far. I'm still not entirely satisfied with this one.

Here are various stages along the way:

And the final:

This is also the first in a occasional series of European Actresses

Hey Euan,

Well done! I saw her in Toronto Airport as she walked about 20 feet from me in 98'. And to be honest...she looked just as awesome in real life!

I am glad that on your posts you are showing the process, as it helps/informs those of us who do not have a formidable grasp on digital painting yet.

I constantly check in to see what you are doing and how you are doing it to see if I can somehow instill it into my own exploration into the process of digital painting.

Someday I'll figure some of it out.

el dude - it's nice to get approval from someone who's seen the real person.

cosmicpencil - from what I've seen, Matt, you're coming along in leaps and bounds with your painting.
