A drawing of my eldest niece, Kirsten. Age 6.
My mother is forcing me to stop being a lazy bum by having me draw my brother's three children: Kirsten, Ryan, and Emma. I have to get all three finished by tomorrow night so she can give them to Craig (my brother) as a sort of belated birthday/Christmas present. Let's see how well this goes, shall we?
I used a mechanical pencil and a regular ole #2, plus a tissue, three q-tips, and a paintbrush. Took 4 hours, with one break that was probably longer than it should have been.
It's not my best drawing ever, but I'm content with it. The hair bothers me a lot, among other things, but I'll survive.
