Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000)

Hedy Lamarr is labeled as one of the most beautiful women ever to grace the silver screen. Lamarr was born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler in Vienna, Austria. Though known as a Hollywood actress, she is also credited to have co-invented an early form of broad spectrum communications technology, a key to modern wireless communication. 

In 1998 Corel Corporation was sued by Lamarr for the unauthorized use of her picture on CorelDraw 8 packaging; the case was settled for an undisclosed amount.

I did this illustration of Ms. Lamarr by using Corel Painter X, another product by the very same Corel Corporation, and a 9x12 Wacom Intuos 3. Painting on Intuos 3 with a stylus pen was an intuitive process than a laborious task.
