    Mother and Son

    It’s been a while since I have posted or tried to do any kind of drawing. I decided to try and do a charcoal drawing of my wife and son from a picture I took a few months ago. Here is a little over an hour or so worth of work. I am not sure if I should start over or try to keep working what I have. Any feedback would be most appreciated.

    That wasn't quit helpfull :/

    Everyone can draw,if you practice alot and you wanna become an artist really bad,you'le become one.
    Posting stuff like that only discourages people.
    I wonder why people even bother taking the effort of posting stuff that nobady has somethin to.

    Anyways, I really like the the start, proportions could be lil better tough.
    Two tips I can give you,wich you've probably allready heared alot,is to look more at what you draw then actually looking at you're drawing itself.
    This will give you more attention to whats on the picture instead of following lines you draw.
    Do not oversize things like chins,noses,ears,... to much.Draw them out gently.
    Well,thats all I can tell you,since I'm not that good myself.
    But hopfully its more helpfull then senneian's post

    Good luck!

    I agree the angle of the mother is tilted toward the child, She is looking at her baby. While the child is looking toward the front. Also pay close attention to where the anatomy is placed. The face on your sketch is pulling to our right and it make the face look odd.

    And as for working on cars, Well some people can't even do that so they try to be funny in art forums.

    I like the medium you are using, keep it up Dude and keep posting!!
