Sweet Slumber: In Depth Tutorial

I bought this tutorial to help me with the skin of babies. I tried adapting your tutorial to my own drawing. I found that I overworked the skin tones which meant I ended up with pencil not adhering to the paper. I used Art Spectrum Colourfix smooth pastelmat paper. Beautiful to draw on, but was unforgiving to me, as I mucked up the colouring/shading on the shoulders and her forhead. The space between the eyes and eyebrow is not as I would have liked it either. I would appreciate any constructive criticism, as this is my second attempt at doing a portrait. My granddaughter is 6 months old in this drawing.

I appreciated the infant as a new exercise in face coloring and the result is pretty good. I thought the spotty pj's were an annoying distraction...(this means I did not do it well)., Also question the coloring of the nearly non-existent chin. I especially appreciated the pictures in the instructions that showed exactly which places used what colors. Sometimes it is not helpful to read "the small part on the left under the chin". I have a real problem in capturing images from tracing and will write a letter to magazine in request for help with this.

Such a beautiful baby to draw. Thank you for such a wonderful tutorial. As always, these tutorials are the best. The only thing better is Ann holding your hand.
