-Supposed to be for MDH, but historical accuracy demanded that I put the portrait in a bonnet. As it turns out, I really loathe bonnets and cannot shade them to save my life.
-Supposed to be Ada Lovelace, but I don't think it really looks like her. She's one of my favorite historical figures, though, so I had to try--who doesn't love a badass lady programmer? That's why she's got the punch cards, although I'm not sure you can tell that's what they are.
-Supposed to be reasonably accurate to the early 1840s, and I think I may have actually succeeded at that one. She should probably have something on her head, but I really, really hate bonnets.
-Supposed to go on a warm-colored background, so probably looks odd and yellowish here.
Despite those failures, I kind of like this anyway.
