Trillian -my best work yet- by MirielDesign Trillian -my best work yet- by MirielDesign
My first drawing of my daughter, Trillian. She's by far the best thing I've made :D
A2, pencils HB 3B 5B and 8B.
I used less than 10 hours, I think.

The drawing is actually bigger than the entire baby...
She's one month old now :)

Here's my reference pic: [link]
I tried drawing from life, but there's only a limited time a baby that young stays still, or even awake...

The only thing I'm not completely satisfied with about the drawing, is the hair. Drawing babyhair is a bit different, it's so much thinner and softer. I didn't really get the right feeling to it, I think. But I know now how to do it the next time.

I've never attended any art-related classes, actually :) I'm self taught.

I'm in jewelry school now, though, but they don't teach us to draw, just how to use tools :)

Thank you!

Very beautiful drawing. I am impressed! It does actually look like a highkey style fineart photography. I think the hair looks natural and soft.
You can be proud of this masterpiece, and I know your daughter will be too, when she grows up and can enjoy the drawing.

You definitely achieved the over-exposed photo look. Gives the eyes a lot of intensity for being such a young child. And I think you did a great job on the hair. The stark contrast would make it look a tad less soft than it actually is anyway.

I think you did a great job capturing how fine and soft baby hair is. She's beautiful. I feel that I somehow put even more care into drawing my children.

Your daughter is beautiful! I can't believe thisis a pencil drawing. Insane.....

Yes, a definitely masterpiece- especially the shape of the cheeks, mouth and depth of her eyes.

Også de øynene og det håret, wow, jeg fikk nesten frysninger da jeg så den tegningen her.

Yes indeed :)
Seems she's the first one in Norway with that name too. And amazingly she ended up being born five weeks early, and arrived on Towel Day [link]

Oh wow, perfect representation here. Glad to see this after sifting through a few less inspired works. I'd say you did a great job on the baby hair. Such stark contrast. Thanks for the eye candy!

I think there this needs more shading around the nose area to add more definition, but other than that this is very good. Cute baby :aww:

But I see your point. It was maybe a little too much light.
Thanks for the input.

I purposely didn't shade it any more, to kind of get the effect of an overexposed photo in a way. I've always used to do a lot of shading in my drawings, but lately I've started experimenting more with the light :)
