Why So Sad, Scarlett?

Hey look, I did a picture:

I was drawn to this image (no pun intended) of Scarlett Johansson because I like how her expression and posture make it look like she's sulking, and if there's one thing I like, it's hot chicks who are kind of surly and ill-tempered.
(I also liked the dress, the way the sort of starkness of the image, the way the light is reflected in her hair. Oh, and besides that, it's Scarlett freakin' Johansson.)
Also, the source image was really low-res and I wanted to see what I could do with such a crappy quality file.
It's not really anything special, though I did try out a few different techniques with it.
Anyway, make of it what you will.

I like it. There's something about that pose that appeals. It reminds me of some Ellen Muth images that were floating around while she was on Dead Like Me.

The lighting effect is pretty cool. You not only managed to wreath her head in light, but limned her dress and skin very well, too.
