soft pastels & vellum
11"x 14"

thought I'd commit myself to a medium that is just a little more involved... I like it, but it is difficult. I'm sure you can tell that I'm more cautious since I'm new at this stuff.

Please critique. Thanks.

sorry about the huge scan... my scanner is not big enough for this size of paper so its cropped, and for some reason it didn't resize right.:p

your connection with this new medium is
so strong due to your playfulness with the
less exalted one.

superb rendering
really beautiful
about the only thing
i can add is a little
of the magical lighter
pastels up on top of
the midtones

Rivetting gaze from the little bodhisattva... Scarily lovely. Forever a fan, Nathan.

Nathan, this is sooooo beautiful!
The eyes are so alive and have that beautiful dreamy baby look, the cheeks are completely kissable and the skin is a myriad of colours that work SO well!
Superb!! :clap:
