Portrait of Melissa

For this painting, I was inspired by Melissa's 'Bring a Cartoon Character to Life' series. Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein's paintings and Japanese manga, Melissa tried to turn herself into a real life doll/cartoon character. This one is based off on one of the photographs i took while she was preparing herself. I really liked the calm expression on her face and the fact that only her lower lip was painted at that point. It took me about 8-9 hours to complete. I'm thinking of creating more work based on the photographs in the future. More information about her work can be found on her blog: http://funny-phantom.blogspot.co.uk/
