Who the hell drew that?  I've seen black-velvet Elvis paintings at the Goodwill better than that!

Haha, oh that made me laugh, alerting the office to my non-working ways. I love Vigo.

FTFA: "Kate Middleton looks like she has had one too many sleepless nights in the first official portrait of her. Bags hang under her eyes and she appears to be trying hard to not doze off in Paul Emsley's rendering for the National Portrait Gallery."

That's some picture of Dorian Gray shiat.. if not for the fact that she's always looking two decades older than her real age, in the first place. Does Paul usually paint what he actually sees instead of the photoshop version? or is this a gentle stab at her, before he's forced to redo the work (or someone redoing it for him)?

I want Paul to paint Beyonce, next. Her recent GQ magazine photoshop results are insulting to the intellect (as usual).

They made her look like she is 45 years old.

Did they use one of those Instagram filters?

This. She's a reasonably attractive woman in real life but that portrait looks aged like she's waiting for a bus to Nutley.

Yeah, very annoying.
I'm trying to read when I hear "Seen here....the remnants of two bum blasts"
Somebody shouldn't have had the chili.

Maybe this is some weird subliminal message from The Crown that the Royals are normal people, too!

/I'd still bang her rotten if she really looked like that.

They've really captured the bags under her eyes.

when did she become a 50 year old insomniac?

So this is her Dorian Gray portrait?

Looks like they used the gout-filter on the Royals.

Not a fan of Kate, but ... ouch.

God, I hope it's not a painting of her soul. Whatever happened to royals posing in over-the-top outfits, crowns, and enormous ermine-lined red cloaks? That would have made for an, if not better, at least more interesting picture.
 
2013-01-11 01:46:23 PM
She looks like her own mother in that picture...But she doesn't look young for 29 anyway.
 
2013-01-11 01:52:38 PM
Not the most flattering image of her. In most shots she looks like a pleasant person. Here she looks evil. I can't believe this is her official portrait.

Straight on angles are horrible. You get no depth on her nose, for instance. It's like a sophisticated Mii avatar.

Better choice.

That artist aged Kate about 20 years in that portrait. Hopefully her husband will have him quietly disposed of for this.

"...a queen who looks bad painted..."

As an artist who went to art school, I can honestly say I've seen better paintings done in my high school AP art classes. Even without the wrinkles and bags under her eyes, that's just pathetic. Colors are too muted and drab.

Off with his head should be the appropriate response here.

I know this is all sorts of wrong, but that picture is farking awesome. Or it would be, if her eyes were the right color.

Not mine. From the link at the bottom of TFA. Fully expected to see that a fellow Farker had made it, but at least Gordinho was on the right track.

Yup, they went for distinguished over youthful. If they do a painting of Pippa's ass, I'd hang that in the front room.

The entire concept of the royal family is disgusting and pathetic.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: The entire concept of the royal family is disgusting and pathetic.


You say that- but I like it personally. I like that they have a politically neutral head of state, and I like that in Britain, hereditary privilege is at least recognized for what it is.

Over here, there's a whole hell of a lot of hereditary privilege that goes into maintaining the upper class, but there's this pervasive myth that most of those guys clawed their way up from the bottom, and I find that a lot more disgusting and pathetic.

I heard the camera adds 10 pounds, but didn't know the brush added ten years.
