Penny Lane by alicexz Penny Lane by alicexz
The mysterious Miss Penny Lane, from the saddest scene in Almost Famous. I watched it again last night, what an incredible film. I have always wanted to draw this part. You can view the clip here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7SqlV…

Drawn and painted in Adobe Photoshop, 2 hours. I got an unexpected day off from work today!

I like this version better! Your more recent version seems not to have captured her essence and look as well as here!

This is awesomesauce and the other version of this is equally stunning, I like both a lot. But the other one looks more real somehow :\ Anyway, love them!

She's with Matt Bellamy now!! :heart:

I have to say I love Patrick Fugit. :) I knew this movie would be perfect for me because I also love Rolling Stone and Billy Crudup. but when Jimmy Fallon was in it too, I just died! Plus, obviously, the music was phenometastical. But Penny Lane was my favorite character. SHe felt things with all her heart, and I loved when she sent Russel to go see Will. Good demonstration of character.

e.r.. point being... :+fav:

I love how soft you kept her features... she is such a stunning woman, and this just emphasises that further.
I really need to rewatch that movie and actually finish it. >.> Keep getting halfway and stopping for one reason or another.
