Per a July art request from my ever-expanding Patreon, here's a set of quick sketches of Hopper from Netflix's Stranger Things, drawn in the iOS app Procreate.

I should hasten to clarify that this isn't really my interpretation of the character as such, but more of a test for digital-art techniques using pics from the show as photoreference. I might still attempt my own take on "Hop" later, for whatever that's worth.

Speaking of digital doofery, I branched out a little from my usual technique of using Procreate's Medium Hard Airbrush for quick sketching, this time working in one of the graphite brushes for the pencil(-ish) tones on the two left-side images. Added s'more white highlights on hair and face (and eyes) with the Eraser tool; also, scaled up the Airbrush tool to generate those big swathes of gray tone in the right-side images, in an attempt to get away from the sketchy zig-zags I'm forced to use for shading when I use the brush at a smaller size.

I do believe I'm learnin', folks, but my voyage into the realm of digital artwork is clearly gonna be a very, very slow and painstaking journey indeed.  For a 30-second time-lapse video of the set's work process (which I can't seem to post here), check out this Instagram post.

I remember the actor was in a movie, but I can't remember which one.
