Working on this portrait of Julia Starikova was enjoyable and easy. She allowed me to get creative, saying it wasn't necessary for it to be an exact miniature replica of herself, so I was able to have fun and get crazy with her hair by putting a purple streak in it and giving her very bold up-do. I've accentuated this doll's edginess by exaggerating her facial features but if you compare her to the real Julia, you'll see a resemblance.
