This portrait of Alicia Keys is a study experiment, the reference is from the cover of the “As I Am” album.

Alicia Keys

The image is 100% digital. I don’t think it quite looks like her though I wasn’t really trying so hard to make it look 1 for 1. Instead I was working on the lights/shadows and details like the mouth, nose and eyes. You can click on the image above for a higher resolution version.
