Athena (Disney's Tomorrowland)

Dreamers Wanted!
This is my entry for Jazza's Challenge of the Month June 2015!

My character of choice is "Athena" (Raffey Cassidy) from Disney's latest movie "Tomorrowland".
***[Movie Spoilers]***
Athena is 8 years old, but she is a robot, so she can't age. Her purpose of existence is to find "dreamers" in order to save the Tomorrowland and therefore, the world.

She finds a smart little boy (later played by George Clooney) who starts develop feelings about her.
Later he finds out she's a robot and he realises that she obviously can't develop any feelings, so he ditches his goals.

I chose her because it would be amazing if she wasn't a robot, aging normaly and live a happy life with the protagonist. I wanted to keep some of her facial features, so I didn't distort them that much...

Keep in mind that i'm drawing for less than two months. I still consider myself a total newbie.
It took me about ~3 days in total, but not continuously.

Special thanks to everyone at Sycra's forum who helped me with suggestions and feedback!


First of all, i think you should say that you've used a reference and link the image :)

I'm happy that i can see you in this painting ^^...anyways, my biggest problem wit this is the approach you took, you see aging is not only about wrinkles; as a matter of facts the shape of your skull changes quite a bit as you get older, the relative size of the features (proportions) varies a lot also and you've to take into account how gravity affects it all and so on and so forth...there's some studies regarding that subject in loomis's books and you can always check photographs for further references.

Overall nice work, mate. Keep it up ^^

You should check the link I've put on the end of my description, since the entire progress can be found there. You can find the reference there, along with my appriach. I learned a lot about aging, and there were many people that helped, but I didn't want to distort her features that much. She's not an iconic character and I wanted her face to still be recognizable.

Thanks for your comment! This is my 4th drawng after all, I'm still learning :)

AWESOME! Nuff said x3
