Similar to my last piece, using the diamond Grid, however the diamonds are smaller and I kept the colour count down to 9.  If you squint you should be able to guess who it is.

Eh, well, love this one. Non-linked diamonds looks better - well, to me anyway.

This is as awesome as the last one, many congratulations to you. :)

Diamonds are a girl's best friend!

They work really well in this rendering too; good work!

Thanks for comments, it's funny you mention the teeth, I had them in and the whole mouth looked wrong, it was'nt dark enough, i kept squinting and looking at it from across the room etc, and I felt it worked better how it is now.

I totally nailed that mole (beauty spot) though

Squinting makes it increibly readable. I do think the face is too round/wide, and the lack of teeth makes it much less recognisable.

It still works, but this one has a bit too low resolution or bad technique, it looks washed out and is not very recognizable! Perhaps do the important details like eye and mouth a bit more simplistic next time to improve readability?

 That looks amazing! I can't even describe what it looks like, but it looks good! You should consider making a larger one to fit more detail in. I bet it'd look great!

Marilyn Monroe?

 

Great technique!

Amazing piece.  Love your profile pic too! Simpsons, South Park and Mii.

Anyway, it's a perfect abstrace piece! I suggest printing it on a canvas and selling it!
