Gwyeneth Paltrow,as a hair-salon owner,and beautician.My last "Portrait-Theme."--I was dead tired,when I started this,I could not literally draw a straight line,I could not even draw the lines of her face;ugh,kept erasing over and over!So,I'm sorry,it IS crude,I was racing with time,I have to get up tomorrow morning,go to the bank,sigh. How many years does it take to get so good with this software,that you can just whip it out,and not look unneat,and sloppy?Cause I just cannot do it.whew.I just thought,"ok,the deadline is like commercial art,soon in a few hours,it will be Sept.,right?portraits all over,in theme room,you have a deadline."So,I pretended I was "commercial",this was a job,even if I was tired,had to get it done...just this last portrait,please,God. I really wanted to do Paltrow,from a photo,did not know HOW to do her,till the last minute I was working on her.and it comes to me"she has such overly exotic styled long hair!!Hair salon!!" I mean,the woman is ALL hair!!
snoopywar 2006/9/4 - 12:33:35
All hair, eh?
I certainly do love the style you did her hair in. xD

The text on the bottom is the biggest hint you'll get. Some of you probably know who this is.
tim_kai 2006/8/22 - 23:42:21
it is entirely possible that I shouldn't have drawn that shirt; I should just have drawn a neck. . .it didn't come out particularly well, that shirt . . .

Damnit, I see several dozen things I could have improved on in this. ARRGH!
tim_kai 2006/8/23 - 0:16:37
I'm posting too many things, I know, but I forgot to link my ref.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/9/8 - 2:31:4
Oh, this cannot be the lead star, the older one, on the t.v. show "Las Vegas"? Probably not, but it sure reminds me of him, kind of a version of him.I just cannot remember who the "are you on the bus?"quote comes from. eh? Was I right? Was it that guy?The actor in "Misery"? The tooth with the star just throws me off. though.

Originally drawn as a gift for a friend, except that it came out awful. So, scrapped.

It was supposed to be Hugh Jackman. :/ Oh, and it took about two hours or so.
chibimiji 2006/8/17 - 21:29:35
I recognized him right away, I think it's a great likeness! I personally love it =O
elolinon 2006/8/18 - 7:24:44
Oh! I love his nose ^^
lorelai 2006/8/18 - 9:21:16
NOOOOOO!! *paws at it to save it* Can I put it in the Theme Room? Polished Room?? Somewhere?? Stop being silly!! it's so nice ;___;
lorelai 2006/8/18 - 9:22:15
OK, someone recognized him, therefore Theme Room it goes :D HURHURHURHUR!!! *abuse of admin powers*

(seriously just speak up if you have a problem with me moving this pic, of course)
golden 2006/8/18 - 11:45:48
This painting totally rocks everything. That nose is quite wonderful :D
mitsu 2006/8/18 - 12:4:51
Painterly and smooooooth. We <3 his shirt. Can we have it? ;9
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/30 - 21:8:14
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/31 - 0:14:10
Ok,so when do I get this neat?and this good?how many years does it take,with this software?ugh,I feel inferior,and sloppy,unneat.This is gorgeous and not overdoneat all,just right(like the little girl in the 3 bears house said.)

sabii 2006/8/15 - 9:48:19
oh horay. as i was doing this, i promised myself i'd do it in a style. whoops :c Sorry
guess guess guess, i say, guess who! i hope he looks.. recognizable. i lost a lot of the original picture's gracefulness :c
blumeaniandglove 2006/8/15 - 20:57:31
It's amazing.
i love the textures.
chibimiji 2006/8/16 - 23:32:57
mind-blowing...stylized yet very realistic
golden 2006/8/16 - 23:56:3
God how I envy you people who can paint like this ;__;
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/17 - 5:32:16
Yes,very wonderful painting.I just went to a county fair today,and one of the most impressive paintings in the exhibits was a huge computer made painting; we could not tell it was a print,and off a computer;it was just like a very fabulous painting.--except for the sign that said what it was.So,you see,computer art is really getting around. This one is wonderful.
mitsu 2006/8/17 - 7:41:42
Wicked! No idea who this is, but it's really sweet. <3 colors, cropping, technique. :))
lorelai 2006/8/17 - 13:5:39
I can't tell who it is ;_; but it's probably not from lack of resemblance, just me not knowing my celebs and/or musicians and whatnot. XD
sabii 2006/8/17 - 13:12:49
okay, i'll just blurb it - it's the wondeful Brian Molko of the band Placebo cx
lorelai 2006/8/18 - 9:24:40
Yeah, totally not familiar with the man or the band...but damn is it a nice profile portrait. Plus, he totally radiates band/music. Really great job, as if I didn't say that enough already.
clua 2006/8/20 - 12:54:54
hehehe it looks like him!
<3 20 years!
irkyturkey 2006/9/17 - 5:58:33

keyblademaster 2006/8/11 - 8:26:48

lorelai 2006/8/11 - 9:21:43

ryoanna 2006/8/11 - 12:59:15

laurie-kay 2006/8/13 - 15:21:46
OMFG Ryoanna you're my heeeroooo <333 (Ps, the link is reposted in my second comment, and I believe that it does work. :)
lorelai 2006/8/13 - 15:57:45
ahahahaha i was way off base =D but yea, Gackt doesn't really look traditionally Japanese, so... :3
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/17 - 5:35:46
Who cares who it is,I cant keep up with all these celebrities,it's just a great picture.(drool.)
makaikitsune 2006/8/20 - 22:17:54

Theme:Portrait of Mel Gibson,blaming the Jews for his drinking, saying"It was the Jew's fault,I was drinking Manischevitzs!!"(the Jewish wine.) urg. Throw rocks at me,I seem to be doing these portraits badly,and usually I am a good portrait drawer;just the whole task gets overwhelming,and I spend hours on it,and this time,I was trying to copy Mel's face off a live feed,I had to start over and over,and still did not get it exact. urrrrg. But,it was interesting watching the newsperson say over and over,that "Mel thought his own behavior was horrible."(?) My dad did the same thing, cause we are about half Jewish,and he would have Jewish friends,and then get wierd and curse Jews; really sick.And he was not even drinking!!So,I understand it;it's called "mental illness."Only thing is,my dad did not make bad religious movies.
mika 2006/8/10 - 22:2:11
I have to admit I actually thought this was Jack Nicholson when I first saw it .........but then again Mel did look rough in that police mugshot....:)
lorelai 2006/8/11 - 9:23:17
You're totally owning this theme dorothy! :) His eyebrows do kind of feel more jack nicholson-y (maybe michael keaton-y) but those eyes really do have a little Mel in them. I'm not sure how I feel about him right now... I've done some dumb things while completely drunk, but be racist? that's extreme.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/17 - 5:39:45
You guys are right,he;s more like Jack Nicholson;maybe I should have picked a better pix of him,cause this one drove me nuts.Yeah,it was not a good mug shot,was it?Course,that;s my exscuse,but it just made it so much harder to do a really good likeness.Yep,that was a horrible mugshot of him.Next time should I do him from the butt-side,nude?heh heh

Theme:Portraits of famous people,in our own style;Woody Allen,in a Kiddy Park.ha ha. oops,ok, well,this was so hard,it needed to come out much better than this,I only had a tiny,black and white photo,a bad one,but the rest just came together. Anyhow,it was such a huge job,way too big,as I found out. yow. fun. fun??
lorelai 2006/8/10 - 11:34:57
Ahh dorothy you're too good at this time XD!!!!
mika 2006/8/10 - 21:58:30
Excellent rendition of Mr Allen there, and I must say I do like your style .......can I see an up and coming current affairs satirist in the making!?

Susan Hayward,the old Movie Star.(I tried,anyhow)for a portrait,in my style.Very hard to get her likeness.I kept watching her old movie,but her face was so hard to get.Not really like this.Oh,well,it was fun--I love susan Hayward movies, heh heh.
z 2006/8/4 - 1:21:56
I just want to grab her head and bite off her left cheek.

That's a good thing~.
happywaterbottle 2006/8/7 - 20:35:41
i'm loving her dress :D
lorelai 2006/8/10 - 11:34:28
oh my goodness, GREAT JOB!!! I love it, it's exactly what i had in mind when I started the theme for this room!!!
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/17 - 5:41:54

My Theme picture(portrait,in my style)of Pres. Bush trying to get votes by doing the Trekkie thing.Yes,it did take that long.I was angry at someone,and it was very therapeutic. yep.Great theme,I loved it,but it was Hell to do. Really got to get that layering down.going to read the instructions well,tinker with it.yeah,it was not too smooth,eh?fun. subject.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/8/1 - 7:14:6
Yes,I am sorry my drawing is so rought lately,been very upset,having to go to a lawyer,having awful legal,emotional family troubles.Ready to kill over it.sorry. not exscuses,but it did not make my hand steady.

John Wayne Gacy, Jr.
I must say, things like this never helped clowns' reputations @_@
*Is terribly afraid of clowns*
blumeaniandglove 2006/7/24 - 23:6:17
ooo, yay!
His artwork is amazing. To bad he was a psycho kid-killer!
z 2006/7/24 - 23:8:49
He happens to be one of my favorite serial killers.

Or, was, before that cold May in '94.

Reminds me of The Joker (color scheme is similar, I guess).

Ride on, Batman.
blacklight 2006/7/25 - 8:9:13
scary teeth. He's gonna eat me... e_e *hides*
You did a good job on those collar poofs.
mitsu 2006/7/25 - 9:10:46
As if clowns weren't horrific enough already. ;p Excellent use of the pattern tools. I dig the color scheme... sickly green and purple fits the deranged clown theme perfectly.
heavenlystrike 2006/7/25 - 19:21:29
Very nice! emotion really kicks in...Can I please run away now TT__TT
lorelai 2006/7/28 - 10:16:35
I spent like 2 hours looking up info about this guy after i saw your oekaki. CREEPY ASS MAN.
laurie-kay 2006/8/8 - 13:32:44
Lmao so did I, Lorelai. Ps, don't look up serial killers at 3 in the morning, you won't be able to sleep afterward. T_T

I love the polka dot theme, and the colour scheme too. =D Awesome!
