Afghan Girl tribute

By SophieHiggins
My original inspiration was from Steve McCurrys image of "The Afghan girl" from an 1985 edition of teh National Geographic. I had to recreate an iconic image and this was the result. Please leave any comment.

This is very good. I think it needs a slightly tighter crop but otherwise its very close. The model has great eyes.

Agree about the tighter crop. You can just start to see part of a white letter on her top, in the bottom right. A nice job though recreating that image.

Thanks for the tips I shall crop it and I manipulated her eyes so they were more orange, he true colour is more green.
