O Level Art Failure

It is true that a portrait need not look exactly like its subject to be a superb portrait. Some highly individualistic painters manage to make all their subjects look as though they belong to the same family, yet still catch the vital character of the individual.
This is not one of those portraits. It is shockingly bad. The eyes, whilst reasonably close representations of Kate's, look slightly stoned. The nose, instead of being coquettish, has become slab-like. And the mouth! What was he thinking? This is a smug smirk, as if to say: "See? I told them I'd get him. Now I'm going to be Queen, so there!"
And, as a final insult to aesthetics, he appears to have put a vaseline glaze over the whole horror show, like a Penthouse Pet of the 1970s.
This is bad. Really bad.

He's turned her into the Wicked Witch of the pantomime rather than the sweet princess.

I gather it must have been morning sittings in the studios.

It is truly terrible. She is like something out of a scifi comic. On the side of the bad guys.

This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to
say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you
have any methods to prevent hackers?

At this time it looks like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
