Here's a first go at the portrait of Madam de Pompadour from the episode. Spent a few hours on it this evening. I think I've started to catch the likeness but I'm missing the shocked expression I was trying to recreate from the reference image. I'm not sure how I'm going to create the necklace and earrings. They're really detailed jewellery but I want to avoid getting to bogged down in unnecessary detail.
I'm looking forward to getting to work on the clockwork androids for the final image. That might be the next part I work on.
