My nephew...I posted a few months ago but have gone back and totally reworked it. Just have to finish the eyes and clear up some murky skin tones. 48x36 on canvas....now to figure out how to frame it for my sister...

Oh he's adorable!

Any chance you could post the reference you are working from?
I'd like to see highlights in the eyes to bring him alive a little more but apart from that I really enjoy this piece just as it is....including the "murky skin tones"! ;)

Well Done! :clap:

Wonderful. It appears to capture the essence of the boy.

Try www.pictureframes.com. They make frames for any size and are inexpensive.

Thanks for the comments everyone :) as far as reference, there was no one reference photo I was using. It was done from him actually here, a few photos, and just my feelings. I didnt count on a photo...so I think thats why Im having problems w/ his eyes. Ill have to find some good photos of his eyes to finish up or something...but the way it stands, she loves it. So Im not too worried about having them totally perfect.

Lady, thanks for the link, will check them out for sure. Im thinkin bout having one of the guys at work make one for me...since I work at Lowes...so Ill have to compare prices and see if homemade is cheaper in this case.
