Once upon a time in the world of explanations, there was none to give.
This is a portrait. Like, from a real person that really exist and that really looks like this. Pretty damn cool is you ask me. Many time I thought: "eh that'd be nice to paint her portrait" and one day I finally jumped on her like a wolf would on a sheep and asked:
"eh beautiful, would you mind posing for me, here's the kind of shit I paint (and I showed her on my cellphone)".
The lady was pretty amused, not to say very excited but that's because I'm french and it's the usual reaction woman have when I talk o them.
I was able to shoot a couple of crappy pictures ( it's all I need ) and let her go since we're not married or anything either.
After that, well, it's the story of a man with his wacom. I could have used real paint but it stinks and I prefer Photoshop and Painter because I'm lame and I dig Ctrl Z.
