Maybe the baby was wearing flesh-coloured mittens.
Maybe I've rendered them perfectly.

Maybe... :blush:

Also it's worth noting that the baby's hands are in front of everything else so perhaps it's a painterly depth of field effect that inadvertently turns them into a blurry mess of slipshod brushstrokes that look exactly like an evasive, excuse-ridden lack of talent. :confident:

Maybe I should have taken a second look at the picture before saying what i did... :dumb:

well... I'll just categorize that as a spelling mistake and blame it on the cat.

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

Love portrait, although I have to agree with the critiques regarding the baby, as it gives an illusion that his face is quite aged. I think softening up a bit might help, as well as completely omitting the green shade on his 'mustache' (this should be avoided for babies or toned significantly!!!) Also there's an impression that he has gray hair on his side due to the harsh lighting, I would probably smoothen out a bit more. The female figure is perfect, and I love the composition, color palette and use of texture overall!

Hey, remember when I used to use this thread? *wistful nostalgia* :lol:

These days I just dump everything in General Scribbles.

But I do remember those struggles with that baby's head (and the fudging of the hands!) Babies are just too smooth and annoying it's so hard to find the planes and structure in those weird little balloon faces. :)

And looking back at that previous page has made me a bit nostalgic about those fake digital watercolours too. I can't seem to do them now. That's yet another skill I've forgotten. :eyeroll:
