Default Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) - The Queen's Gambit
After watching (and becoming obsessed with) The Queen's Gambit, I decided to try and create Beth as a sim. I'm unsure how to continue, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Great start! The actresses face is actually a little longer. Can you make the chin longer and push it back. The eyes and mouth look good to me. Maybe raise the eyebrows a bit. Nose needs to be narrower at the bridge to make more of a triangle shape. Try turning the nose tip down a little, as well. Perhaps increase the nasolabial crease a bit. Looking forward to updates!

i think this looks very good. I agree with all the suggestions made by SimmyRN on this. I also suggest making the hair slightly darker/redder and giving the nostrils more definition(slightly wider/more curvature).

Thank you both so much for your feedback! I've made some tweaks to her based on your comments. I have mainly been focusing on getting her profile more accurate. Noses are always a struggle for me, but I think it's getting closer. I've made her hair redder too, though I'm probably going to tweak the final color some more.

I think this looks a lot better than your first pictures. You have improved the chin area and the bridge of nose angie. I think the way to improve profile further may be to extend the nose or perhaps the face as a whole slightly.

Profile and nose have been slightly extended now

She is looking uncannily real! I superimposed your images to show how the profiles match.

You might be able to see more clearly if I offset them a little, real person is <<left and sim is >>right.

Pretty close! Real Beth has a slightly more forward forhead and slightly receded chin/ lower jaw, nose matches precisely though!

Thank you for your input! I've made some tweaks to her profile, trying to get it more accurate in those areas. I tried superimposing my pictures, and personally, I think it's really close now.




I've also made some changes to the front, most noticeably changing her eyebrows to a pair I think more closely resembles the actress' (though I still need to tweak the color). The eyes have been slightly tweaked too.


And just for fun, I superimposed the front pictures too

Very nice! I think, maybe, make the nasal bridge a little narrower still and raise the nostrils a tiny bit, if possible. The nose and profile look great from the side. I think the model's hair is more of a ginger color rather than so red. I don't know how much you can adjust it. The hair style is a very close match. Great work!

I think this looks very good. I think hair color sort of depends on which picture you want for the final sim. Some of the first reference pictures have lighter hair/some are darker. You should see how the sim looks in different lighting to be sure you are happy with your final selection.
