This portrait is of a student and her brother.  I used a photograph of them taken by a wonderful photographer to get a basis for this image.  I like that each of these individual's personalities are clearly reflected in their focal points - the one looking outward at the world with a "come hither" (though very sage) grin, the other looking outward at the world from a deep interior resevoir.  As far as their likeness to the actual people, I think that she is close, and he is almost alright, but I bet he's resenting that nose I gave him.  I TRIED!!  In real life, he's quite handsome.
