Lynn with an intent look, Selfies, by Elaine (jaguarish)

For my first "other" selfie I wanted to try Lynn, as I love the look in her eyes and the slightly cheeky mouth.  However I think the subtleties were lost in translation... but I'm really happy with parts of this result!  (The right eye especially... ha, ha, better than the left eye...)  Also didn't quite get the right shape of nose.  But I do think Lynn now looks so glamorous with purple and blue halo effects through her hair.  :)

Thanks for his theme Lynn, I am looking forward to trying to depict the others' selfies!


  1. You definitely captured Lynn's sideways glance :-)

  2. You captured her sight and outlook! Nice colors too!

  3. Thanks everyone, got to love those magenta glasses! It was interesting that when I diluted the same colour and tried dabbing it on for shadows, surprisingly the colour didn't look out of place, and played off the glasses colour (I think) pulling the composition together!

  4. Wow! I love everything about this! It is so me! Thanks so much! Love the mouth, the eyes, the magenta glasses, my gray hair! Wow! The shirt! Shadows! It rocks!

  5. Thanks Lynn! I've been holding my breath waiting for your reaction!
