Mona Vance by Smaggers Mona Vance by Smaggers
I did this for a magazine at the start of the year and the exclusive copyright is now out so I can, at last , post it here.

I'm only partly convinced it was successful. The Mona Lisa is only the Mona Lisa because it is her. It had to be Alyx enough to be Alyx and not Mona.

I'm still fairly pleased that I got the style vaguely close though.

I remember seeing it a while back, think I still have the issue lying around somewhere.

The two main problems seem to be the bulkiness of the lower-half of her chest, and starting from below her nose-bridge, her face looks askew. Her mouth makes her look like she's smirking instead of giving a faint smile. If at least those two things were fixed, the whole piece would be fine and dandy.

Every time I look at this picture I see more wrong with it.

Still that's artwork innit...

I might get so fed up with it that I'll either redo it or bin it. :)

When I repainted it I really went for trying to get it as like the original as I could. I may have a go at this with acrylics, It's on my project list, but there's a lot on there already.

Yeah Mydrian. She is a bit now you come to mention it. Her headshape is off too and her left arm is just wrong. I might give it another run once work gets a bit less hectic
