Amy by richardxthripp Amy by richardxthripp
Pencil sketch of my 2nd cousin, Amy. :D She'll be 3 years old in 3 months. I drew this on 2006-06-18 from this photo I took of her; put 2 hours into it.

The nose comes together much too quickly, and it's too distinct. Usually I only draw one side of the nose but since it's straight-on I just would go less far upward and make it less dark of a line. Draw less of the nostrils.

As for the eyes, her right needs more visible eyelashes. They are too far apart, the little circles inside the are too dark, and they are too... tall?

As for the hair, I would do some shading and add light lines of hair in the blank spots.

The ear is too short and isn't up far enough.

The shirt comes off from the body a bit too much.

That's all, and you're welcome for the critique.

Thanks very much for the critique! I noticed the problems with the shirt afterwards, but was kind of tired of changing stuff on it so I left it like that. :p The shading other people mentioned too, although the other stuff I didn't notice. I'll consider that when I do editing to this later.

Thanks! Yeah, I didn't make them like that at first, but changed it since they look like that in the photo too. :)

maaayyybe a little shading on her face would make this much more realistic-looking. Other than that, I think it's nice. She's a cutie. :XD:

Thanks! :D Hmm, yeah, I think you're right... I didn't want to do much shading because I thought I'd make it look bad, but I might try that later.

yeah, you need some around her eyes and her nose. and maybe some around the pacifyer(sp) in her mouth so it doesn't look so flat. And some like, on the edges of her head, I can't explain it. But really, it doesn't look bad. I just think that would improve it. :)

Thank you! :) You can if you try... well at least if you're drawing from a graphical reference; just draw what you see. ;p

:lol:, try drawing it upside-down; that's how I did this drawing. Makes it easier to recognize the shapes and what-not. :p
