Cool! I like the close up cropping of the composition. You have a nice range of values here. Delightful and charming piece of work! :clap:

Thanks!:D

The cropping really made the portrait. The original was a 4x5 photo with the baby's face about the size of a quarter. Between that and the washed out contrast from the flash it was a real challenge. And people think drawing from photos is easy.:spin:

You did a great job on the face expression and I love how you shaded the skin :)

The little hand of the baby looks too cute ;D
