Amber Benson by Flynn-the-cat Amber Benson by Flynn-the-cat
Amber Benson, who played Tara Maclay in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and was Willow's girlfriend.

Started this at the same time as the one below (got bored with this one and tried to paint her in another style)



Got stuck on the eyes and finally finished up this evening. (I'm supposed to be doing homework - but I just realised that the deadline for printing for Armageddon is right on top of me)

Here, I went and used the hair colour from Tara's first appearance, which was a very pale bleached whitish-blonde; her natural colour is brown. I did that for two reasons: firstly, to challenge myself a bit, and not take it directly from the reference photograph (and hair is HARD, so that may have been a mistake!) and secondly, because I was somewhat fascinated with the colour and wanted to explore it a bit.

Total time: Eight hours

I'd love to tell you what a great job you've done, but honestly your work looks like 'paint overs', and it kind of confuses me. Do you have any WIPs for either to reference?
