The Early Attempts at Photorealism - Little Girl

Not too long ago I learned about photorealism (sometimes referred to as hyperrealism). While many critics dismissed this as a form of art, I believe that photorealism involves a great deal of skill and patience. I also see the potential of photorealism (for example, using I photo that I took, but adding in things that my photo did not capture). Alas, I digress. I am unofficially trying my hand at photorealism using either photos found online, photos I've taken or other photos. Below is a drawing showing the photo and the attempt at the photorealistic representation in pencil form.

Here are links to some inspiring photorealistic drawings. Hope you enjoy
