i started this one just to see if i could do the tough pose. not perfect, but i was happy with the way it came out for a 2 hour sketch. yeah... tones should probably be darker to match the reference, but it was getting messy on this textured paper.

Graphite on 9 X 12 Loew Cornell Drawing paper.

Great job. When I was a child Pixie Sticks were much smaller, the size of drinking straws. Ah, the memories.

OH Mike!!! Of course YOU KNOW I LOVE IT!!!!!:lol: :lol: It is fantastic!!! This was another of my little challenges, and I am so glad you took it on!!! I had another photo of Grace blowing bubbles in a flowergirl dress for a wedding, but I thought this one would be a good pose to challenge the portrait artists on here!!! You pulled it off with complete success!!I am shamelessly in love with this:D

It is a tough pose, but not a problem for you. In 2 hours is hard to get all the details and finishing but this one is fine. Children look better when you use a light hand.

Same as Valri here. I was thinking about painting this but now I don't know. Amazing job!

Oh yes! This is super Mike - really nice drawing - and the delicacy of the tones is right for a child and the light (my opinion anyway, FWIW!!!!!!)
Just lovely :D
