now THIS is how a small child's portrait should look! your style is very reminicent of donna greene (the velveteen rabbit amongst others) with the top lighting that always makes children look angelic. beautiful job. ana.
This is just magnificent....I love it...is the background ink?
Artist Reply: Thanks Steve, for your comment. No, the background is not ink. It is a combination of charcoal and graphite. 2B each, and a lot of blending. I also used a kneaded erasor and an electric erasor to help pull out some of the lights, then more blending.
