Dragon by alicexz Dragon by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE

Commissioned portrait of Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium trilogy.) Specifically requested to match the color and style of my earlier piece "Wasp" of the same character, so the similarities are intentional. A lot of experimentation going on in this piece still. I referenced multiple photos of Noomi Rapace and used a bit of texture from =Sirius-sdz!

Commissions are closed indefinitely due to the insane backlog, sorry!

Outstanding! You have definitely captured Lisbeth the way I've always imagined her. I agree that here is no one who can portray Lisbeth the way Noomi Rapace can......:D WIN

Noomi Rapace captures the look FAR better than Rooney Mara ever did.

Gives me chills. She's a real savage beast. One of the best characters portrayed by cinematography in the last years. Noomi Rapace's Salander portrayal is much more strong than Mara's, at least to me! But still, is matter of tastes. Incredible texture, my friend! I loved it!

So fucking cool. I love this loads, it reflects so much of the character's personality and depth. I personally prefer your earlier version with Rooney Mara, but this one rocks every bit as much! Mindblowing skills!
