Here's a scan of the preliminary drawing for a portrait of Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel:
The reason for posting the image at this stage is that over on the main Hobbit movie forum, there was quite a debate as to whether the woman in the vlog was actually Evangeline Lilly, or just a stunt double. Evangeline's most striking feature is her mouth, so you have to get that right to achieve a likeness. In this underdrawing the shape of her mouth is easier to see. The woman in the vlog had quite a different shaped mouth, so I'm sure she was just EL's stunt double.
Don't mess with my favorite female elf.
