The process of drawing my nephew Gan Solo

New year, new nephew. Friends,  meet my nephew Solomon, son of my cousin A and his Vietnamese wife....or as my corny cousin affectionately calls his son, Gan Solo (yep...Star Wars reference..*LOL*).

I started with a quick sketch using a coloured pencil (Faber Castell Polychromo).

Once I was happy with the general placement of features, I darkened the drawing further with the same coloured pencil.

Next, I worked on the mouth...

Then I gave him some colour on the cheeks...

And gave him some hair...;)

Getting in on the details...this took me over a week to draw (a few hours each day)...

And it looks nothing like the reference photo...hahaha!

What do you think?
