Ok there's something very interesting going on with this piece. It's clear you've got the resemblence of Jolie down, but I don't think that's the reason why it works.
With the likeness aside, you've somehow manage to capture the feel of Angelina Jolie. Her essence... I believe it's the way you've depicted subtle mannerisms and idiosyncrasies that exude the feel of Angelina Jolie that makes this work....and makes this more than just a mere homage....or what you called "interpretation" It's totally believable that this in itself could be Angelina...
Jolly good stuff, Nicole....jolly good.. or should I say Jolie good...haha take care...drive safely
Sorry it took me forever to answer back! Had a ridiculous amount of comments to wade through.
Well, I have to say that is beyond a compliment. It's the kind of thing you fold up and tuck inside your heart. I'll be keeping it there always to remind me when I go astray and lose my muse. This has been a rough year for me personally as an artist. Been filled with a lot of self doubt and been my own worst critic. So I thank you Chuck, for reminding me who I am as an artist and what I am truly capable of when I just let go.
