The face is drawn from a photo. I don't have her permission to post her photo online, but it is what she looks like.
All other things except the face are made up.

I'm so humbled by this picture. I was commissioned to do a similar type of work for family members, but this is so much more advanced. You've accurately re-created the style and design of the era while maintaining your own personality.

A wonderful idea to do a Renaissance-like portrait from a photo. Of course no Italian painter would have used a dusky background, but this makes your painting the more intriguing. I hope the person you portrayed liked herself in that saintly look. ;)

Wow, that's gorgeous. Outstanding use of light in this one, the image is very soft and delicate to look at.

It looks like something from hundreds of years ago. :)

You really are marvelous with pastels!

My one critique is that her eyes are looking different directions. Which actually wasn't that uncommon in long ago portraits...

Very lifelike, and the textures of her dress is beautifully done, as well as the tones of her skin :)
However, her eyes seems to look slightly in two different directions, not by much, but there's just something there...hmm. Anyway, minor detail.
