You saw the SL recreation of Jack Vettriano's famous painting "The Singing Butler" a couple months ago -- now behold this tribute to Vettriano's "A Kind of Loving". The SL rendition was created by Venus Petrov -- click here to embiggenate. Now compare with the original below (from the artist's official homepage) after the break:
Seriously impressed by all the small elements Ms. Petrov captures perfectly. Only element missing from the original is the man's slightly down-turned head, which subtly suggests some kind of sadness or perhaps loneliness (at least to me). But truly amazing 3D rendition of a 2D classic.
Fun fact: The avatar in the image is run by Goodie McCross, the same person who created the "Singing Butler" rendition. Vettriano tag-teaming!
