Even though I've got a lot more patience when I do something creative than otherwise, in the end of a painting like this I just want it to be over with :p

Yesterday afternoon my cold took over entirely and sent me away from the screen. So I didn't get a chance to finish this until today.

Thanks for your comments yesterday and I hope you like the end result :)

The reference photo I used had a light background, but because Miss Blanchett's skin is so pale I figured that a darker background would be of benefit for her. It makes her skin glow in a different way.

Her earrings are a bit different too...and I added a bit of glow to them.
Um...the crushed velvet in the dress took a while to get use to. I've learned both to simplify and paint detailed in the past, and this was a bit of both. Still need to get all the shades and highlights right since that's what makes this fabric look the way it does.

And that's it I think.
As an answer on the question if I started painting the cast of LOTR - nopes. Lord Of The Rings is not even among my favorites with this actress. I like her a lot more as Queen Elizabeth :)

Thanks for peeking in :D

Wow, lovely job! I think you captured her very well. It's hard to get a sense of depth and to get proper lighting values in a 2D effort, but you did a splendid job here! Great job!

You did an amazing job on this. Again, thanks for sharing your process. I think you captured her style, skin, and personality perfectly. Perfect costume, too. It should be hanging in her house.

Oh, my! You have created an exquisite painting of Cate Blanchett. You've captured her elegance as well as her sensuality. And the glow in the earrings gives her a spiritual quality. Wonderful art. CC
