Here is a prgress pic on the drawing that I asked if I should finish. I need to start over on his hair...I don't like it. I am going to do the background in CPs.

I wanted to remind myself of your first post of this drawing so, for anyone who has the same urge, here's the link:
Link to earlier post of this drawing (http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000120.html)

I think you've done terrific on this drawing - you've really moved it forward. The work on the jacket is great. I agree that the hair needs a bit more doing to it.

What are CPs - colour pencils? Be careful. Introducing a new medium at such a late stage could be tricky. I would find it tough to make it look like a unified whole statement. Why not try the CPs out on a photocopy of the drawing first?

best wishes

I really really like how this one is coming along! Before adding any cp, maybe finish up the face and hair (I know you said you were going to redo the hair) first. I really don't think it needs any color but that is TOTALLY my opinion as I am very into b & w. Any progress on this since the last time you posted it? I would really like to see it!


It is good to have an end to journey towards but in the end, all that matters is the Journey.

I really enjoy your rendering of this little toddler. The expression is so alive it is exciting to view. I do some portraits mostly in watercolor but have never done a baby and I may do one now. I have to get my grandaughter wedding picture done first. Keep up the wonderful work! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Cathy, I agree with Sandra about making some
copies to do the color background on first to see if that's going to work for you.. I
really like what you've completed so far, but if you bring the whole portrait up to
what you have done with the jacket it would
be wonderful... The main thing is that if your happy with it just as is... then leave
it alone... I went back and looked at your
1st. posting also... Thanks for sharing a
really good piece of art with us.
