Modern Vermeer by Annezon Modern Vermeer by Annezon
This is my version of Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring. I know it's been done to pieces...but when I saw :iconreine-haru:'s portrait stock...it just SCREAMED Vermeer! I want to thank her so much for allowing us to use such beautiful portraiture. I used this lovely photo [link]

I want to dedicate this as a gift to my friend :iconvaledhelven:. I've been wanting to do a painting for her and I've had this one in my mind for a while now. I know she loves elves and since I don't know how to paint elves, let's pretend that she has elf ears under her turban:giggle:;-) Love you muches!!!!:heart::smooch::love:

I'm learning more and more how to use the burn tool. It really comes in handy for darkening my darkest colors. And I want to thank :iconcrayonmaniac: for her wonderful hair tutorial!![link] I'm DEFINITELY not as good at it as her, but I tried her method and the hair in my painting is certainly better than it usually is!!! Thanks my favorite Maniac :tighthug::love::heart:

I think of everything I've painted, this will be my favorite! I am really proud of this one if I do say so myself. It's certainly not perfect...but it's one of my best so far!

Hope you all enjoy :blowkiss::heart:

You can do it! :iconcheerplz: But I will warn you ahead of time: Christine is as passionate against pointy ears as I am for them, so expect lots of grief from her if you do one ;) personally, "methinks she doth protesteth too much," but that's just me =p
