No, I found the photo it's based from. The body is correct (but not the jacket, or face) in comparison to the photo. A different facial expression in the artwork compared to the still.

Did you manage to find the whole thing? This is all I found:

Anyway, it's not all that different from what Struzan was doing on the novel covers, and the Dark House cover artists as well, frequently adapting publicity stills or stills from the films into the basis for new drawings. As a non-interested party, I don't see any problem with it.
