Eleven – Colored Pencil

This took me FOREVER but here’s Eleven from Stranger Things! I love how my art teacher gives us so much room to express our own interests and personalities in our projects.

The goal was to create a colored pencil drawing from a reference, cropping it to create a unique composition. I realized soon after starting this drawing that I did not choose the easiest reference. The neon lights and unnatural colors on her face definitely created a challenge for me. I exaggerated those colors a bit more to create a bright and intense look.

It’s not perfect, but I’d say it’s a pretty good start considering I’ve never attempted a realistic human face in this medium before. I’ll definitely be doing more of it in the future!
