People practice - Children

People are really my week point when it comes to drawing, but I would love to be able to do great portraits so am getting little practice in by drawing my sisters children one by one (she has three :)) Here's the start of my first one with ref. photo

loox great so far
Oh maybe I'll build my house on your cloud
Here I'm tumbling for you
Stumbling through the work that I have to do
Don't mean to harm you

Re: People practice - Children

Your outline is perfect - I take it you grid or trace? Not that either matters, quick ways of getting the results. I think you need more tonal variation on the facial skin. What pencils have you used and did you blend? Blending can have the (anti)effect of making a surface look flatter, and a face is anything but.
Well done so far, keep practicing!

Re: People practice - Children

I drew the outline using a grid, as yet I find people a bit difficult to do freehand at the moment, need more practice! I hadn't finished shading the face in the picture, I will upload an update soon of the face complete (although I will probably keep dabbing at it as I do the rest of the drawing), I'm using mainly 2B and 6B so far, and yes I am blending but trying not to do it too much

Re: People practice - Children

Looks good CJ,don't overdo the face,babies are notorious for having smooth skin :roll: It's hard to replicate and easy to over cook it,i tend to use high number H pencils and hold the far end and work sideways with no pressure,then blend with a makeup disc.Good luck.

Re: People practice - Children

Thanks for the advice Russ, I'll try the make-up disc, haven't used one before with my drawings so will give it a try. Sadly this is on hold for the next week or two due to a few commissions coming in, but hopefully once they're done I will be able to get back to this to get it finished
