    This is beautiful Robert. You have done a fabulous job with those pencils. The eyes are amazing. Look forward to seeing the finished piece, although this looks pretty close to finished to me.

  • Thank you Linda, as ever your support means the world to me. If he looks big it is because he is! He’s in clothes for a 3 year old at the age of one and a half! I am going to get some paper that has no texture because some detail is lost due to the roughness of the paper. However, I am very pleased with the likeness and the overall feel of the piece.

    Yeah – but I don’t mind the ‘texture’ to be honest. I think it adds some ‘character’, but I know what you mean. The hair is really great too, and that little cheek on the hand would have been quite tricky, but you did it really well.
