Natalie Portman portrait.
Haven't been around in a few weeks, heard the servers here got hacked. Good to see them back up.

Anyway, Just recently finished this piece of Natalie Portman from the movie "CLOSER". Worked on it off and on for about 3 weeks. let me know what you think.

Nice job mate - really like the colors and some of the details in the lower face. Not sure about the eyes tho - they look a tad high / too far back I think.

cheers arran! Yeah the eyes seem to be off a little. Not sure how to bring them forward. Probably wont do anything about the height. I'm tired of working on it lol.

Cheers Rhetoric Camel! Natalie plays a stripper in this movie. The scene the in the reference you posted is inside the strip club. I heard the nude scenes she did were cut out.

I thought the movie could have been better. It would have been better if they kept her nude scenes in. The movie was hyped up alot because of Natalie's supposed nude scenes that were supposed to be in the movie.

Cheers Jay! I came across some art from this movie somewhere on the net that looked really good. I decided to do one of my own. I think it came out really good IMO. Glad you really liked it Jay!
