Wow!

Is a great picture, even it looks... real.

Woah

Woah

Absolutely amazing. Love how you did the nose. I could never get that right. And yeah, i think the lips could be more slender or different but it definitely doesn't detract from the work as a whole.

Nice

Premise: I can't draw for shit, so I'm just giving an honest opinion from a viewer's perspective ^__^.

Here goes:

I adored "Memoirs of a Geisha" and find that you recreated the movie-poster pretty well (even though the face of the original was slightly more round). You captured Sayuri's essence pretty well: She seems to have pride and sadness in her eyes and the seriousness of her lips help define a composed facial expression.

The eyes were spectacular. Love 'em.

The chin was very well drawn. Love the soft shadow it casts on the neck.

I'd agree with the lips... they seem like some dried tomatos or something, but it's not bad nonetheless ^__^.

The hair (the grey lines you drew actually) was the part that I didn't like. Anything BUT photo-realistic. It made it go from a refined piece of work to a sketch.

Fantastic job nonetheless. Keep it up ^__^.
