This was done with charcoal mostly. I used pencils instead of the stick this time and was able to control it much better. Used totrtillion for lips, nose and parts of eyes for shading. Did most of the face/tshirt with my finger. Hair was tough with charcoal so after a couple attempts I decided to make up most of it. I don't like how the top left turned out but I really like how the middle and top right of the hair looks. Shit was supposed to have lots of texture but I decided to tone that down a bit so it doesn't draw focus from the face/eyes. Other tools include kneaded eraser and tissue papers.
First, your nephew is adorable! Second, this is an excellent drawing.
Thanks! I agree he is. The photograph I was referencing from was beautifully taken. He always knows when you are trying to take a photograph and hides the smile haha
