Special thanks to everyone who commented and I wish I could address you all individually but it's just been so darn busy lately. I have started to add the background and blend back the sides of her face. I want the main focus of this drawing to be the "center" of her face.
hey maureen, loooking good! :) Is that charcoal on the background? How on earth do you blend her face? What pencils do you use? H's? sorry for so many questions :)
05-28-2005, 09:38 PM
Beautiful drawing Maureen, I'm also really intrested in how you blend.
looks awesome so far! which size of paper do you use?
05-28-2005, 09:47 PM
woaaa... it's wonderful :D !!!
05-28-2005, 09:52 PM

WOW!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: I can't believe how you can get the eyes look soo clear and watery and the skin soo smooth....it is just amazing. And the baby is soooooo adorable!!!

ooh how cute! :D cant wait to see it finished /Hannan

Thanks Dellie and no, it's not charcoal in the background. I used a 4B graphite stick to cover large areas quickly.
Thanks skills, elli, disturb, ardnoosh, degraw, enola, bella, alex, Joe, Ramona, and Hannan for your comments and encouragment.
To answer your questions on blending: The paper is Fabriano Artistico which is a very velvety paper and takes darks easily so I decided to blend with tissue paper this time and I also use tortillions and paper stumps with H and HB pencils. With a paper like Bristol Smooth I would use a 2 or 3B pencil and H to blend over the top of that. I build up the layers slowly and softly and blend in between to create gradual light to dark tones so it looks smooth and natural. As for the eyes I use a 4B mechanical pencil and start with the darkest parts first (pupil and streak out the markings. Eyes are like little tiny webbings with dark and light spots, hills and valleys and such. They are really very intricate and complex areas. Hope this helps and I am sure I could explain it better. If you need further tips just let me know. Here's an upclose scan and I'll post an update later today.
p.s. I noticed that the nose was off so I fixed the fleshy part of it but it doesn't show that in this scan......next one will.

Great work Maureen, the eyes look beautifully drawn. The only critiques are that the ear and clothing looks a bit unfinished.
02-12-2006, 11:13 AM
That baby is so adorable!! Very very very well done ^___^
02-12-2006, 11:31 AM

aaaw the baby is so cute!!! It's a really nice drawing!!!
02-12-2006, 01:38 PM
Amazing! It looks like a photo :shock:
02-19-2006, 05:21 PM
thanks skills....the unfinished look on the ear is purposeful. I wanted the shirt and ear to be muted and in the background, per say, so as not to take away from Ruby's eyes and face. Thank you Annie, Ramona, Tulia and Suzanne for stopping by and commenting. I appreciate it very much.
Here is one I finished and also a new commission I am working on right now. The first one is Clara and the second one is Hunter.
02-19-2006, 05:33 PM
