Vivien Leigh by casparofambrose Vivien Leigh by casparofambrose
Interesting subject. I found a lot of the contours of her face very new to me Id never drawn features like them before.

This took a lot more time than I estimated. Perhaps Im just becoming a slow artist. I got extremely impatient and sloppy towards the end and it shows. Im not used to doing such soft, undefined shadows and low contrast. It was much more difficult than I had originally expected. I reworked the nose so many times that I began to fear I would permanently damage the paper and just left it as is. I wish I would have picked a better picture. I initially picked this [link] reference because I thought the eyes looked fun, but I realized too late that it lacked the strong light that I think makes a good, realistic portrait. Not at all impressed with this one. I can see at least a few things I should have fixed now that I've uploaded it onto the computer. Already losing the edge I just picked up from my last picture? Ugh, Dean is a tough act to follow.

I have my sights set on Loretta Young [link] next.

Edit: I gave this to my grandmother so I got a better picture of it with more sufficient lighting before I gave it away. It's a lot clearer now...
