Hard to capture, let alone caricature...

... this woman was one of the most physically beautiful to ever walk the planet. I've tried to draw her before and never succeeded;  this is my first half-decent version of Vivien Leigh. Everyone knows her as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind, but she followed up that role by playing a tragic heroine in the 1940 tearjerker, Waterloo Bridge. The B/W cinematography of this movie quite possibly captures even more of her beauty than the Technicolor GWTW.
This started out as a marker drawing which I then scanned and added some painting in Photoshop.
