I can see the scan is washed out some - normal with as much white - but I would like to see a bit more value in the rendering of the skin. Other than that, this is an excellent drawing.
C&C most welcome! You know, I saw this with the little guy's eyes, tried to correct it and messed it up worse than it was - so I put it back the way it began. It was a commission and I was under the gun to get it done, so I just fixed it as best as I could and let it go. Live and learn is what I believe. I showed it to my client, pointed out the 'flaws' I saw and gave her the opportunity to back out. She would have none of it, she was delighted with it. What did I learn from it? Measure, measure, measure!!! This is only the second drawing of children I have ever done, so I was happy with it for the most part.
Thanks for your honest comments!
Thank you so much!
