Live-drawing Hungry’s first ever live twitch stream!

Hungry first twitchstream by Suzanne Forbes March 6 2021I am of course a huge fan of Berlin superstar Hungry.

I have drawn her from life, at Bushwig Berlin in 2019, and from her Insta Live.

So when she teased to her Patreon Patrons (I’ve been a Patron from the first day!) that she was gonna do a twitch stream for the first time, I had to draw it.

It is absolutely fascinating to watch Hungry do a face.

I love the way she moves her eyes visually, with effects like this white eye-liner false waterline and lashes. She lays on areas of color or shadow and they become something totally unexpected!

Since twitch streams stay up for two weeks, you can watch the magic yourself- I highly recommend the experience!

However, I struggled with her likeness this time. I did an initial take on the structure of her face and felt I’d gotten it wrong. Of course, as I was drawing, Hungry’s features moved in and out of prominence, eyebrows glued down, lips being covered with foundation, and so on, but that wasn’t a problem last time.

This is the rough I discarded; looking at it now I think it was better than the structure from my second try!Hungry first twitchstream rough draft by Suzanne Forbes March 6 2021

But that’s portraiture; you do it and do it to get better, and you draw the same people over and over to learn how to draw them, and that’s the process.

As Sargent said, “A portrait is a picture with a little something wrong with the mouth.”

I was able to spend two hours on the twitch stream drawing and documenting this unique Queer Berlin artist because of my Patreon Patrons. ThankĀ you, so much!
