Two Attempts???





I tried doing Eva Green from Casino Royale multiple ways and decided that she is really hard for me to get a likeness.



Ah well I will move on.

I think the lips and chin work better from the first one and the eyes and nose work better in the second.

I see her in the left one for sure. On the right it looks like a slightly older version, or something...the way the cheekbones are pushed out. But I do, however, love the technique on both!

I was starting to jones for a post over here! I like how these are both so luminous. Like an old oil painting with lots of glazing and gallery lights. I think you captured part of her essence on the left. The hair making the neck appear so thin is a cool touch.

I agree with everyone here, the left Eva works better, what to say after such pertinent comments?? the painting is perfect on the 2 pieces and once again you've done something outstanding...

Both are great - I prefer the left pic overall - I think the pose and lighting work slightly better. I really like the exaggeration in the right pic though. Good stuff!!!

these are beautiful. there might be more of a likeness in the one on the left like everyone else mentioned but for some reason I really like the one on the right. the eyes are beautiful. nice paintings.
