Little  One by Paul-Shanghai Little  One by Paul-Shanghai
The reference I used for this drawing, featured as the main screen shot for an initiative called 'Generation 3:16' [link] on investigation - the charity itself is called 'Little Ones Ministries' [link] who provide "food and Hope" to children in Mexico, Nicaragua and the USA. Originally I was just going to ask for their permission to use the photograph of this adorable child, then I thought perhaps I could do some more, and why not try and raise some money for charity?

So I have decided that I will donate $1 for the 'favourites' I receive through DA before January 1st 2013 - it wont cost you a cent to add the drawing as a favourite, but if you did want to contribute or help with the charity the links are below;

Generation 3:16 5 Day Poverty Challenge [link]

or

Little Ones Ministries [link]

Some of you will know that I have drawn several children in the past few months;

So I guess this is my small way of saying thanks to them - and giving something back. I am not a rich man (I hope to receive about 250 faves - any more than this and I may have to ask for help!)

(To help raise some more money, I was also thinking of auctioning the original drawing and adding this to the amount raised from 'Fave'ing'? Let me know if you think this is a good idea, and I will set up an auction via ebay.)

The drawing is on Bristol Board Smooth, Size A3 and made with mechanical pencils 4H to 4B

****UPDATE****UPDATE****UPDATE****

As Promised I have uploaded a short animation that shows some of the drawing development, it can be found by clicking the thumbnail below.

I always enjoy trying to guess the image, I intentionally try and obscure the reflection to leave this little bit of mystery in the drawing :)

They are wonderful - I love to draw eyes with a milky reflection, rather than just conventional pupil and Iris, with the obligatory square reflection :) Glad you like it.
