Commissioned portrait of Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium trilogy.) Specifically requested to match the color and style of my earlier piece "Wasp" of the same character, so the similarities are intentional. A lot of experimentation going on in this piece still. I referenced multiple photos of Noomi Rapace and used a bit of texture from Sirius-sdz!

Commissions are closed indefinitely due to the insane backlog, sorry!

Niiice. I'm grateful that you took the time to produce another piece of Lisbeth so that we can compare Rapace's version with Mara's! 👌

Outstanding! You have definitely captured Lisbeth the way I've always imagined her. I agree that here is no one who can portray Lisbeth the way Noomi Rapace can......:D WIN

I love this painting. Just watched the trilogy again- always good. Well executed and the color is perfect.

Noomi Rapace captures the look FAR better than Rooney Mara ever did.

Gives me chills. She's a real savage beast. One of the best characters portrayed by cinematography in the last years. Noomi Rapace's Salander portrayal is much more strong than Mara's, at least to me! But still, is matter of tastes. Incredible texture, my friend! I loved it!
