Mother and son. by dreamarian Mother and son. by dreamarian
Christmas commission for a friend.

Graphite Pencils (mostly B, B9 & F)
A3 Cartridge paper.
4 or 5 days - I can't remember.


I wasn't happy with the quality of the reference pics but it turned out alright. There is one more similar commission I have to finish.
This was not particularly challenging to say the least.

The other half of the commission:


The reference photos.

This is lovely, I love the look in their eyes. And the smiles, too. I find smiles really hard to draw but you nailed it here. Love your soft shading, too. :aww:

Gawd, not particularly challenging, I wish I had your confidence and expertise as everything I do is a challenge. Still, I guess confidence will come with more effort and practice.

I think it's a wonderful drawing and I'm sure your friend will love it. :nod:

Well when you put it like that I do sound like a douche...
What I meant was: compared to the color pencil (which you can't erase or smudge) this was easy. I find the graphite much more forgiving.
That better?
