Memoirs by yummiedesire Memoirs by yummiedesire
Surprisingly, this is made with gradients. Please ignore the bottom, it bothers me greatly. I'm proud of it, I really am. I promise to practice gradient vexels more. Who could obviously resist vexelling such a beautiful portrait?
A beautiful woman and actress, I envy her. One of my favorite movies.
Sorry not all the hair is lineart. A great amount of it is "stoke path"--ed because it made it look smoother. But I'll promise to practice with more lineart hair (cough cough lies cough cough).

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-11-02

The reference picture used for Memoirs by ~yummiedesire is incredibly popular, as many of you have surely seen the movie, "Memoirs of a Geisha". Personally, I believe this vexel is doing the reference justice. The gradient work is amazing, adding to the softness and flow of the picture. Great job!
