Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown

Postby Anderson » Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:27 pm

My apologies for not having been more active. The day job has been something of a soul-sucking nightmare stealing dreams right from under me.

I teach elementary-age children to draw realistically. It's what I do. This is the portrait we are working on now.

I do not expect the same level of detail in the kids' pictures, by the way, though I have seen a couple of children draw quite the same way I do. But for my own benefit, I wanted to push more towards a photorealistic interpretation of the hair—not strand for strand, as I have not the patience for that, yet, but something more similar to the photograph than work I've done previously. Some of my hair back in the day was quite rushed. One day, I hope to have command of my skills to the point that I might capture a very extreme example of photorealism, along the lines of Armin Mersmann. Maybe then I can tackle more impressionistic interpretations of what I see.

I might be halfway done here. The values are far from close. I don't know if I want to blend it out or not.

Huge fan of the show, by the way.

Hello Millie,

you have made a great start for a quality drawing. Just keep it coming. In my mind the eyes and mouth are the most critical for likeness. Regarding the drawing quality in general, the distribution of values has some importance. Having some really dark areas usually improves the final drawing a lot. Probably you knew all this already. I will keep my eyes on this project.
