this was started to participate in a contest hosted by =JurgenDoe, but i missed the deadline... oh well! :shrug:

so i decided to go ahead, once the reference was a bit challenging and i really wanted to do a straight celebrity portrait, which i haven't done for ages (well, i guess i haven't done nothing for ages, hehe)

anyway, here is Kate Beckinsale, in a black and white vector.

i was really tempted to play with variations to add a slight coloring after have exported the vector to .png, but this way it would turn it into a vexel?, so i decided to keep my original intention.

hope you like it.

*edit: corrected a little mistake in the iris + added watermark =/

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-30

When I first saw this in the DD section, I thought it looked great. But it was when I FullViewed it when my jaw-dropped.

The attention to detail here is impeccable. The first thing I looked at was the gorgeous looking eye. I seriously looked at it for a good minute or two to look at all the incredible details.

The hair is also beautiful! It looks so natural.

I seriously can not find a single thing to complain about in this picture. Everything looks so perfect, the lips, the nails the wonderful lighting. It looks amazing in black & white as well, it was a good choice in not making this color in my opinion.

Congratulations on the Daily Deviation! This is truly one of the most deserving pieces I have seen here that holds this price.
