This is a portrait of the terrific british actress Maggie Smith, here playing the character of Lady Violet in the tv series Downton Abbey. The portrait is made using graphite on paper - original size 27x29.5 cm / 10.6x11.6 in.
Fantastic work. Your portraits have a lot of good depth. Amazing textures too.
really well done!
Wow! She's my favorite character in the whole series! Wonderful job on the detailed face! Awesome!
This is amazing. You did a wonderful job in getting all the details in there.
Brilliantly done, I can't see anything even the slightest bit off. A true portrait of a brilliant and beautiful woman. Thanks so much for not shying away from portraying her true beauty.

I want to remove this from my favourites just so that I can have the priviledge of adding it again! This is truly a beautiful piece of art!
You're so kind, I'm blushing!!!!! Thanks a lot, really!!! Gosh... I've no words, just keep on telling you thanks... THANKS!!!! ^_*
Wow Thank you so much, I'm really honoured!!!! Thanks a lot, really!!!!!
Great detail and shading!
This is absolutely fantastic!! How long did it take you??
Thanks!!!! A little bit, to be honest1 It's not very easy to me to realize actually how long 'cause I've 2 very little kids, so in these days my work goes by fits and starts, intermittently... anyway, I guess more or less some months.. (Sorry If I can't be more specific... the joy of motherhood!!!! ^_^)
Wow this is wonderful! THe details
Stunning. The detail is immense!
Thank you!!!!! Thank you very much!!
omg it's wonderful!
truely awsome. Maggie Smith is one adorable actor and your portait really does her justice! I am especially fascitnated by the way you worked out her eyes, their watery eyeball textures and the focus you put on them! The way they sit in their sockets, wrapped in elderly, paperlike skin is excellently done, too!
Wow.... You left me with no more words to say... but thanks, thanks a lot, your compliments actually give me a boost!!!! Thank you very much!!!!
wow... man, more identical would be impossible.
it's me or she's like michael caine?
