Edith Piaf

“I haven't quite got her face proportions right (too narrow and too long) but I have learned a lot from making this portrait of Piaf. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYuhL7F3sHQ. Monochrome freed me from the torture of skin tone allowing me to pay closer attention to shape <em>I worked with a 200x150 pixel reference photo to one side of my screen</em>”

really good resemblance also. I knew who it was before I read the name. It is hard to do skin in Black and white in my opinion and you did great. Keep it up!
