[link] original brilliant painting by John Singer Sargent

I wanted to do a recreation of this for the longest time. I'm didn't try to completely copy his his work, just wanted to do a my style meets his version.
he was a genius, and he's one of the biggest influences on my colouring techniques... him and rockwell *gush

here's a close up... don't make fun of the lack of fingernails... they weren't really required for the overall painting [link]

I recognized this painting from the thumbnail, so I'd say it's a pretty good likeness! Although... it looks like the infamous shoulder straps are missing! Haha.
