My Boy

This is finally finished, for some reason I found the guy really hard to draw. This occassionally happens with people, I just could not get the eyes right! Well, here it is, still not 100% happy with it but I think it looks enough like the photo. I'm hoping that the person I'm did it for will be happy. First time I've been asked to add text at the bottom of a portrait too.


  1. Looks great Louise, how long does one of these usually take you to draw?
    And I find babies massively hard to draw, you have done a wonderful job here though.

  2. Depends on what I'm asked to draw. This one took ages simply because I'm a perfectionist and couldn't get it right! I normally spend a few hours a night on a portrait so going by that I could finish one in a few days.

    Babies aren't so bad, with portraits, once you've got the eyes right the rest is pretty much plain sailing. Thanks for the comment!
