I've finished the portrait part of the drawing of "Eden"... the important thing about babies, is the eyes, and mouth... well it's all important, but on the whole, if you get these areas right, the rest feels a little easier. The important thing about eyes (any eyes, not just babies) is to ensure there is a lot of life in them... reflections refractions light and shadow - they all play a part in making the eye look shiny, dimensional and expressive. The part of any portrait I enjoy the most, is the hair - babies have lovely soft, light hair, and it really helps to remember how the baby looked at that stage of their development...
