Owen, 5" x 7", Graphite Pencil on Paper

This image is meant to portray the delicate gesture and soft lighting from the initial picture. For this effect, I blurred the lines around the edges of the portrait and didn’t push the darkness of the shadows surrounding the face.

The real challenge in this picture was accepting how large Owen’s cheeks were. I couldn’t believe his adorable face was so wide!
