Beautiful, but also masculine; something about the proportion of the facial features looks male, and of course the upward angle of both our PoV and the light makes the chin and jaw look larger. Even knowing Varda's female isn't helping me see this that way.
I have to also agree with this. While this pictures is beautiful and detailed work as always, there's something that separates her from Varda as I know her no matter how much I try see it as her. The biggest reason is that the image says quite a lot that "this character is masculine". I feel kind of bad saying this because overall your work is so impressive. I do, however, like the concept for the work, and the lighting as well as facial expression.
