Me, but not really

@ the met

The Peasant Girl with a White Head Cloth by Wilhelm Leibl, german painter 1885.

When I went to the met on Sunday, I saw a painting that I had to take a picture of. Why? Well, when I was a Junior I had to recreate it in photoshop(with the help of my teacher who took the original photo of me). I had to make an original photo look as painterly as the real painting. I thought the girl and I had a similar nose and was pale like me, so that's what got me interested in it when I was scoping out the Met website a few years back. What do you think?

background added w/ some lighting accents

final version w/ face, veil, and shirt done (me looking like I'm painted)
