"...a pale, anorexic young woman who had hair as short as a fuse, and a pierced nose and eyebrows. She had a wasp tattoo about an inch long on her neck, a tattooed loop around the biceps of her left arm and another around her left ankle. On those occasions when she had been wearing a tank top, a dragon tattoo can be seen on her left shoulder blade."

Portrait of Lisbeth Salander - a personal work and the first time I've ever drawn her. I'm really looking forward to David Fincher's upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, he is one of my favorite filmmakers. Many hours in Adobe Photoshop, used some refs of Rooney Mara.

EDIT 09/14/12: Thank you for the Daily Deviation, Marcellyne!

Nice! 👌 I like both the original Swedish film and the U.S. remake. Shame Mara and Craig didn't return for the second installment.

Rooney Mara and Noomi Rapace were BOTH the BEST Chracterizations of Lisbeth Salander. NO OTHER ACTRESS on either side of the Atlantic could have done Her.

This piece is AMAZING. I love the look in her eyes, and the way the red colour forms kind of a crown on her head. The strokes look so dynamic... Wonderful. Thank you for sharing your work!

Rooney definitely matched my personal image of Lisbeth, but in the end I loved both portrayals from her and Noomi. I do have to applaud Fincher's version because I feel it stuck closer to the book more than the Swedish, but that doesn't mean I love the Swedish version any less.

Loved this movie- but I am torn between the actresses as who played the better Lisbeth, they both brought powerful qualities to their roles.

HATED the actual dragon tattoo in the American was super dull.

Hi! I adore this piece, and I recently saw it on an iPhone case sold here: [link]

I just wanted to check and make sure that this seller is either you, or someone who got permission to use it.

No, they don't have permission. :\ This sort of stuff happens all the time though, not much I can really do about it...
