[quote=Johnny Heinonen;674659]I chose the great Greta Garbo as my inspirational subject.
The picture I was imitating was one of the publicity shots for the movie "Mata Hari". It was taken by Clarence Sinclair Bull in 1931 (or 1932 depending on the source).
You can see the original HERE.

And here is my rendition:

Almost there but the skin is a little too blotchy (I need to highlight: from editing and not the model) ... since you asked me to comment

Unfortunately, you have not met her in real life. Usually the lighting is such that it does not reveal all contours on her face. This time though, it comes from the side, and since I don't like to retouch too much, it remained as is. But thanks for trying though

yeah, like I said in PM it looks fantastic on print. Too bad the internet is still so slow we need to revert to using jpeg... lossless internet format, now there is a thought
