My First Drawing of a Child

So, I've never drawn children before. Angela, who I went to high school with, asked me if I would draw an image of her son, Kason. It was quite a challenge and I can't tell you how many drafts I went through before getting to the final version. I wasn't happy at all with it at first, but it's starting to grow on me. I guess it's hard (for me at least) to capture the soft innocence of a child. In any case, since she posted the picture on her blog, I figured I would post it here as well. Maybe now I'll try to draw more children and get better at it.

Wow. This looks totally challenging. Have you been working on any others? Stretching your internal artist, you are!
