Illustration Friday: Grow

Illustration Friday: Grow
Graphite pencil with a sepia colored pencil overlay
For this week's theme of "grow", I automatically thought of my kids. I decided to draw a picture from a photo of my kids when they were younger. I always loved this one. I think the drawing looks much better than the uploaded image. For some reason I couldn't get the coloring to look the same on the computer. The real photo was done in sepia tones, so I drew this picture in graphite pencil and then lightly colored over the top with a colored pencil to give it that sepia tone look.
