New drawing.... after a while!

So i finally finished a drawing i had been working on for quite a few weeks. It was my first paid commission so i did my best to make it as perfect as possible. It took me quite some weeks since i kept working on and off. What was new for me this time was putting three faces in one paper. I had never done that so it was my first time doing it and i loved the way it turned out. I know its not 100% perfect but i believe i did a really good job. The hair on all three kids was a challenge since i always struggle with hair. As far as technique, it was all circulism this time. No blending what so ever. No stumps, no tissue, no brushes. Just circulism. I realized that i still need practice with it but i got it down pretty well for it being my 2nd time doing it. on to the drawing....

- 12''x16'' Arches Hot Pressed watercolor paper
- Pentel GraphGear 1000 0.9, 0.7, 0.5, 0.3
- Kneaded eraser
- Paper Mate eraser stick

By the way, IN MY OWN OPINION, if you want the best paper... use arches watercolor paper. It can handle graphite like a champ!!

It looks a lot better in person, i couldnt capture the darks in the drawing with the camera. Any Comments and critiques are welcomed!

Your work looks really good. I will say that in the reference picture of the baby she has some scary looking eyes.

Re: New drawing.... after a while!

Yes, a lovely piece. I like how you blend the three faces together as one. And the background shading is really effective. Well done.

The little girl's right cheek looks larger than her left because of the shading. Maybe you coul deasily even that out?? Also, perhaps you could think about replicating the single point of light highlights that are present in the boy's eyes, in the little girl's eyes?

I see youve used mechanical pencils on watercolour paper, interesting - it works well?

Re: New drawing.... after a while!

Yes i didnt like the fact that the little girl had those pitch black eyes... But ive learned to draw the persons the way there are in the picture since the commissioner gives you that picture because its them who likes it! another drawing coming soon! :D
