Robbie Williams - up close and personal!

Robbie Williams up close and personal for my sister Alyson - a very late birthday present made with love. He's a bit wicked looking this one - I wouldn't recommend she put him in a dark corner.
I really enjoyed cutting this face. Lots of fine details and I love watching the face form as the layers build. Very often you can see who the person is after only a couple of layers.

This close-up shows the fine details around the eyes. I even cut lashes that were as thick as a needle. The overall picture measures 30xm x 30cm (12" x 12") so the lashes were real-life size. I almost didn't worry, but the eyes weren't finished without them. Glad I made the effort.

Aly won't see these portraits however, until after Cowra Show in early September. Sorry petal!
