He’s really much cuter than this.

Pencil

Here I have a portrait of my baby in progress. It’s funny how you get working on something for hours and put the blinders on about how the overall proportions are. Even when I step back, I see it’s fine. I check the angles and distances against the photo reference, and it all checks out. Though I have this feeling I’m not capturing the necessary level of cuteness.

Then, I take a photo. Ahhhhhh. I see the problem. Damn.

photo (1)Either the eyes are too small or everything else is too big. He looks like Jay Leno. Well, I may just scrap it altogether now.

Maybe it can be fixed. The question is, is it better to fix the eyes, which are the real problem? Or the rest, which is not in quite as dark yet? Hmmm. I really liked that ear.

Note to self: Take a photo after the rough sketch next time!
