Day #133 – Mother and Baby Drawing

Did this drawing for Reddit user Catherinelove of her and her daughter after this request.

I tried toning the paper first with this one and then using the eraser to put in the highlights at the end. I have mixed feelings about the results as it was harder than I anticipated to erase with fine detail.

I’m quite happy with the expressions captured and the general feel of the drawing, probably the part that’s most out is the lower half of the mother I think I compressed it a little. You probably couldn’t tell without looking at the reference photo though.

This might be the first time I’ve drawn two portraits in one drawing so that’s another milestone I’m happy about also.
