Well, that day has come.

I’ll be doing a portrait challenge to improve my illustration skills and techniques. I struggle with using skin colors, especially when painting shadows and highlights. Facial proportions are so different between adults and babies, so I want to learn more about that. Eyes are another struggle of mine…they convey so much. Just a slight change in the eyes can ruin a picture!

Today is babies. It sounded like a good idea to start from the beginning, literally.

Babies are so precious. Perks of having a big family…there are always babies around! I actually got the inspiration to paint the last baby from a picture of my niece. She’s a perfect model.

Hope you guys enjoy this challenge! I’m sorry I can’t commit to a 30 day challenge (or *gasps* 100 day challenge!). Plus, I think you might get bored.
