Hello everybody
this is a draw made by HB, 6B and 9B pencil on paper.
It's still in progress. Could you give me some suggestion to improve it?

First let me welcome you to the forum.

This is beautiful. One of the things that could improve this already wonderful drawing is to have eye interaction between the Lady and the Baby. Both are looking else where and that in my opinion detracts from the over all picture.

The subject matter is great and composition is spot on. You are very good with detail. You are not afraid of the dark and have great shadowing.

I would suggest, the shadows on their faces may be a little too dark? (or abrupt?) Maybe you could highlight the hair just a bit? I am talking very slight adjustments here.

The woman's face is quite realistic, the baby's not as much.

What is happening over the baby's head? Cannot figure out if it's a hat or a child's hair?....

I hope you don't think I am trying to tear this piece apart because I think it is beautiful!

Great job! It's really cool!

I'm finding her lips a bit big or wide, but maybe she is like that >.<

Nice job :3

I would suggest that you frame it and sell it! Very nicely done. And Welcome

Welcome!! I agree with both Terry and Susan. The child appears to be staring into the unknown...maybe some subtle changes in the eyes and shading??

I do think it will be a gorgeous piece when you are finished. :biggrin:

Hi Susan, in fact I have some problem with the face of the baby.
The baby has an old hat
