Rooney Mara has become, in only two films (Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), one of my favourite actresses around.

Your artwork has extremely talented textures throughout, providing a photo-realism, but it also retains a lot of artistic touches that make this piece all the more amazing. The oily texture of the skin, the individual threads of hair, the shadows, clothes, all have been reproduced with great care and artistry.

But where your artwork detaches from most of the lot is in the eyes. Miss Mara's stare has been lovingly reproduced here on your piece and perfectly catches that sweetness and warmth she exudes in the original picture.

Your technique to translate every texture on this artwork is astonishing. You have an eagle's eye to observe reality and be able to put it on paper. In terms of originality, I would say reproducing a picture isn't quite original, although the results truly show you can do it with great respect and almost wizardry.

the impact? I saw your image and was struck. You shine some of your talents here, and this piece makes it obvious you have many more aces up your sleeve. Definitely a masterpiece in its own right, one that I would be proud to put on my wall.

Congratulations on such a wonderful and realistic achievement without erasing the artist's soul behind the pencils.
