A friend sent me a link to her family photos web site and I was so charmed by this little guy I wanted to draw him. I don't think I've ever done a baby portrait before. It was challenging since, for this kind of drawing, it felt like I needed to keep a very gentle touch with the pencil, something I'm not used to doing.

I love this drawing...what a beautiful baby, too. The only thing I would say is that the pupils don't look like they quite match up which makes the eyes look a wee bit off. Otherwise...great. You have managed to make it look three dimensional and not give it the flat drawn-from-photo look that is so hard to avoid.

looks like to did a great job!....i notice that too when drawing a very pretty girl or a young face, you have to be very sensitive n careful with your lines.
