I felt it.
I felt perfect.
I was perfect.
I've been planning to do this picture ever since I saw Black Swan
back in December.
That movie... It was amazing. Perfection... It's definitely my pick for Best Picture at the Oscars.

It's hard for me to talk about the movie without rambling for hours on what I thought about it...but basically the whole "double" life of Nina Sayers as the White & Black swan was incredible (and is what I tried to depict in this piece). Sad, but so beautifully portrayed in this movie. The snowballing of events dark and turbulent that led up to the climactic ending was just so well done.....
It was hard for me not
to draw something from this movie.
As I drew this I listened to the movie's soundtrack, mostly "Opposites Attract" and "Perfection."
I highly recommend seeing the movie if you haven't (only if you're older than 16 at least and are OK with sex& some creepy violence) and also downloading these tracks. They're amazing. I have a hard time listening to "Perfection" without crying. I don't know why. It's not often that I get so emotional over a song.
So about the picture... I know the flaws. Anatomy especially. Her arm position is wonky, mostly because I couldn't find references for this position in specific. There are also some face position issues...bah. I used the few pictures I could find on Google of Natalie Portman playing this role, but there weren't many of this position.
I did experiment with coloring, lighting and manymanymany textures though. Mostly by `cloaks
and a couple by ~nighty-stock
and some by ~funnybunny-stock
. Thank you all for your lovely textures!
I would really appreciate constructive criticism <3
