The wonderful finished pencil portrait by an Australian graphic designer Amy Clemens (x)
Amy congratulated to Eddie on his Oscar for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking.
We are only at the beginning of the process, but Eddie is already recognizable.
Work in progress, Eddie Redmayne. (x)
I like this phase the best. The beautiful face is already done and
the other parts of the drawing not distract you in admiring it.
Work in process (x)
The Theory of Everything a few weeks ago, I knew I had to draw him. His performance
as Stephen Hawking was incredibly moving and inspiring. What a talent.
quartzion-thecrystal-queen asked: Do you use photographs from online for reference?
Answer: Yes, most of the time I use one reference image or a range of images. If I am creating something original
I often use parts of many images to create something new.
P.S.: This is not new, but I like it so much, I thought it worth posting. I think the only reason that I didn't posted when she made the pic, that it was in the middle of the awards season and so many things happenned that time. Her work based on a photo from the sesion by Rainer Hosch for Venice Magazine (2010)
