Nice work, I see due to someones mistake they reported she died yesterday in the press when in fact she died in 2010.
Still nice that she was acknowledged a second time around.

Belongs in Madame Tussaud's. Very good likeness. Punchy highlights. Sorry to hear of her passing. . . at 92 back in 2010. :rolleyes:

Impressive look. The style looks much like the illustrations of old movies, when the protagonists and an evocative scene where painted by excellent illustrators and printed to be hanged on the side of the cinemas' entrance.
