Lisbeth Salander: Noomi Rapace by xpiratical Lisbeth Salander: Noomi Rapace by xpiratical
Right.
Just finished reading the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson, and must say I have found a new favourite character! :D

Lisbeth Salander is one tough cookie, and I love the way she is portrayed and how her character develops in the series.

I also love how Noomi Rapace portrays her in the films of the books, and think she does it perfectly.

Tried a black and white picture this time, mainly for practice in shading and highlights.
Reference picture used of course for likeness. ;)

Was being lazy near the end so used some skin textures by KeepWaitng

Copyright, Lisbeth Salander, Millennium Series, Stieg Larsson etc.

If I could ask you one question - do you think that Swedish film is better than the latest, American one, directed by D. Fincher? I prefer american version - it's closer to the Larssons' novel.

Hah that's interesting that you think that. I preferred the Swedish version personally, thought the casting was better. But the American version wasn't a bad film in any way, and they didn't miss out/change as much stuff from the books, so you have a point. ;)

you're welcome! The picture is really stunning! <3
I just started reading "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and Lisbeth Salander is my favorite heroine ever. She is absolutely fascinating, and I think you captured her likeness and closed off personality well, with those strange dark eyes that are like fish hooks.
Great, great work!!!
