Guess who?

Rather than spoon feed you with the name of my subject, I thought I'd test out my accuracy by getting others to guess who I've drawn :) To be honest, I'll be stunned if anyone works this one out.

I guess I'm more trying to convey the beauty in my chosen subjects, without necessarily being restricted to accuracy. That's what photos are for! So if you don't know who this is, that's totally fine, as long as you see something in it that you like :)
