I've always wanted to replicate Vermeers painting :)

Window light...

This is a project for my Humanities class, it took almost 2 hours to get the "veil" right, luckly my model was patient and she sorta looks like the girl in the painting (I think).

Its under Digital Manipulation because I added textures to the "veil" and burnt in a couple shadows

Mine vs. Original :P :

Model is a good subject for this pose. Nicely done. How about some of Rembrandt's more dramatic scenes now?
