Baby Giggles by Paul-Shanghai Baby Giggles by Paul-Shanghai
Well after a plethora of sad and melancholic children, I have finally succumb to pressure and drawn a happy child, not just a happy one, but from the picture one that seems to be in a fit of giggles :)

Permission to use a photograph from [link] was kindly given by Andria Crawford-Whitehead, thank you so much - please check out their website for some incredible photography.

Normal culprits used Bristol Board Smooth, Size A3. Various Mechanical and traditional pencils ranging from 4H to 4B, erasers and blending tools.

Well after all of the Sad children I had to do one that was happy - not as popular as the sad ones!!! Perhaps that tells you something about life? :D

Wow! This is amazing. I love the fluffy carpet or blanket that the little one is sitting on. The face says it all. It's almost like someone has come by and tickled her or him. Well done.

Thank you - I am not sure what made her laugh like this - but guess tickling was involved :)

I know! They were gorgeous works, but very depressing!

WoW I never saw them as depressing, thoughtful and perhaps thought provoking, but not depressing? Sorry to say you haven't seen the last of them - I still have some great reference photographs to draw. Sorry to depress you :(

(I will stop commenting after this) Well, I am only sent into that mood because of my love for children. It is hard to see those beautiful little faces you draw sad. I think, however, I was a little dramatic when describing myself as depressed. And don't be sorry! It is an amazing thing to have your art viewers feel such powerful emotion when seeing your art!

Yay a cute happy baby! Thanks Paul woot!

The carpet looked like it sure would have been a pain to do, so awesomely great job on that :thumbsup: Same with the baby really nice work would of been equally difficult to get all the lines right with the shading.
