messed up makeover

as I wasn't very pleased with the painting Messenger I had decided to give the girl a makeover. This is how it went.
before Christmas she looked like this. Transparent and alien. Insect like.

I wanted her warmer, more human - and less skinny. On Monday she had gotten a more classical look. (balancing on the border to kitsch is tricky. Sometimes you cross the line, but it is hard to see when you're in the middle of it) But the painting as a whole still didn't work.

Last night I just felt I needed a more radical change. Honestly I felt anything would be better than what I had.
... hm. I think this makeover needs more than make up. It's time to take out the knives.

Check the most amazing t-shirt aimee made when she was only 17 years old!

wow! such subtle changes, yet each one makes the painting look totally different. i like the middle 'classical' one.

I also like the middle one. (And I can sense your frustration in the last one - perhaps you can call it Daughter of Spock!)
