Self Portrait 43 of 100: Illustration Friday, "Baby"

The topic on illustration friday this week is "baby". Which was really weird, because I was just thinking that that would be a nice topic to draw.

This is me and my daughter Abby... I know I look like a crazy guy who just won the baby prize, but that's kind of how I feel. She often has this look, like "What now?"... Such a funny baby! Ha-ha!

Babies are hard to draw... they have all the same stuff as normal people, but it's all mushed together weird. While they ARE very cute, it's easy to draw them ugly. Had a lot of fun though, and I definetely want to do more drawings of her in the future. This was drawn with blue pencil then inked. Then vectorized and colored in Corel draw.

That's it for now. Until next time, take care and be good!
Your friend

I agree - the faces are so funny! The image is different from a typical father/baby portrait yet communicates the universally recognizable happiness and pride of the father and innocence (bewilderment?) of the baby.
