Lauren Bacall by Joanna-Vu Lauren Bacall by Joanna-Vu
A classic portrait today! A few months ago, Angelic-Yunie :iconangelic-yunie: suggested that I should do a Lauren Bacall portrait. (thank you Angelic! :heart:) So, here it is at last! I started working on this quite some time ago (I know, shame on me!) and finished it just yesterday so you might notice some inconsistencies (:whisper: ssssh, but that's going to be our little secret, right? ;)). I don't know why, I simply adore vintage black and white portraits, there's something special about them... Ok, that's for now, enjoy!

Thank you so much! :tighthug: :heart: But ... you have! This is ...me!!! :lmao: I had plans of uploading a portrait of me some time ago but it didn't go well. Of course I tried to draw-shop myself (instead of ... photoshop!) you know, straighten my nose, smooth my hair ... and it ended up a mess, lol! Seriously now, you will see me soon enough, I promise!
