New Sketch “He’s Got The Whole World in His Hands”

Long time since an update! Hope people are still sticking around! I have some new pieces but have been slacking on the website!.

This is a piece I did in July. It is the largest drawing I have ever done on a 16 X 24 piece of paper and done mainly with 2B-6B pencils. I honestly can’t even remember how many hours this took, but it took a long time. I paid very close attention to detail and wanted to make sure it was perfect. In the areas with the most detail I would spend up to 1 hour on a square inch of detail. I was very nervous to draw the “world” and I contemplated leaving it blank and jokingly made a statement that if the whole world thing didn’t turn out, it could just be a white ball & end up a picture of someone playing beer pong. 😉

Anyways! Hope you enjoy, I have some prints available to purchase and am also selling a downloadable PDF as well. Just drop a comment! As always, I appreciate all feedback, constructive & otherwise.

“He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”

Baby hands and feet

Time: 5 hours

There are things I want to draw, then there are things I am inspired to draw. This drawing was the latter. This is a first original, completely done without reference. It is actually drawn of my 8 month old. I wanted to remember his chubby legs, hands and feet. I know how quickly the baby stage passes so I enjoyed studying and observing his cute features and documenting them through pencil.

It was way easier to draw than initially anticipated. I took my time with the hands and feat, carefully played Attention to detail ad am pleased with the simplicity of it. Its  unique composition, which made it interesting to draw.

I made sure to work on not overshading. And the whole drawing was done with  2H pencil And the shadows were darkened with a HB.
