Passenger boat for sight seeing boat trips

Organization industry

We've just finished a competition to rename our new boat, we'll be calling it Dame Shirley, after the Welsh singer Shirley Bassey. We would like to have her on our boat, like Virgin Airplane nose art, but instead of her legs she will be a mermaid and hold the Welsh flag, examples can be seen here and I have attached a crude mock up that I did myself.…80&bih=709

The finished piece should be more realistic and not a cartoon

See how this image has lots more shades in the face and with the hair 

Further requirements

Needs to be in a vector are welcome to use a different image of Shirley Bassey, I just picked the first one I found for my example.

Try this picture of Shirley Bassey…g/main.jpg
