The Attack of the Portraits

The first piece was for an assignment where we had to create a portrait of Wangari Maathai.  She's a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for her work in Africa.  It was a supposed cover piece, which mean we had to leave space for text.

The other piece is for an album cover.  I chose Catpower, and without her signature hair, the likeness is thrown off. 

Both are portraits, both aren't incredibly exact.  But I'm really happy with the Catpower one.  It was supposed to be incredibly Alphonse Mucha-esque and I enjoyed doing it.
