No, but I can see some similarity in the features.

She has eyes, ears, a nose and a mouth ;)

Couldn’t resist that clue!:D

Looks a bit like Maya Angelou, the African-American poet and activist.

She wrote "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," among others.

I did find a less obvious image to work from. She’s an icon! Really surprised no one here has got this one yet.

Ella Fitzgerald?

Actually, second thought, Nina Simone.

Definitely not Billie Holiday, Etta James, Roberta Flack, or Dionne Warwick.

Like I said, she’s got eyes, ears, a nose and a mouth. She ain’t got no home, ain’t got no money:

Here’s the pic I’m working with:

I give up. Who is it?

By the way, you're very talented, Badger.

If you do requests, do Frank Sinatra for me.

Nina Simone. Watch the link, you know her.

I believe I have some untapped talent. What you see above is more about me learning how to replicate images and improve technique. With enough practice anyone could do what I've done above.

I've not tried to draw anything that wasn't completely abstract for around 20 yrs. It's mostly about persistance at the moment, not talent.
