All -- I'd love your thoughts on this TV character. The portrait is pastels on colorful. The face is probably nine inches high. Here's the reference: title/sansa. I'd love your thoughts on likeness, values, and color choice. I'd like to know, from the pastel portraitists and others, what colors you use for lips and eyeballs. I've always tried to use skin colors from the face with a little more violet and white respectively, but I often have to rework the values and colors for these features. Lastly, does the subject look 17; that's the age of the actress. Thanks!!

Not familiar with character but did a google search and found picture - I think you captured her perfectly. I wasn't sure of hairline on forehead but I see that is correct. I don't do portraits so will not offer any color choices except to say I like the eyes and lips already. I think the background color works well. Pam :clap:

I knew right away who it was before I read your paragraph, (I watch Game of Thrones) great likeness.

Latest version below. I'm sorry. I thought I had posted the link to the reference photos. Apparently, I didn't. Here it is: http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/22900000/Sansa-Stark-sansa-stark-22944020-1001-563.png.

Pam -- thanks!

Trudi -- thanks! You got it!

I really like that copper orange against the blue in this dynamic portrait. I guess the lips and eyeballs have to do with the race of the individual and the actual color of the eyes. Gee, Liz Taylor had violet eyes.....so.

really nice job.
