    Love your drawings! I am a fan of simple, uncluttered art work... nice work! Keep that pencil sharp and keep posting...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    If you look closely you will find very little in the way of line work. The whole subject matter is defined by the shadows, which gives it volume and mass. This is what I mean when I say "drawing is about light."

    This is not to say that line drawing has no place or is not real drawing. Not at all. But if someone wants to learn what drawing is all about, they need to start with volume, shadow, light and mass. Once that is understood, they can freely and easily transition to less representational forms. This is my view on learning to draw (though I'm a bit of a traditionalist).

    Infants are hard to draw, for me.. their heads are bigger, there is little bone structure to be seen, and their facial features are positioned differently than an adult..... but this is cute!

    Super cute! Love the little balled up hands as well and the curve of the legs. Very baby-esque

    I'm starting to see shadows and volume! Keep going!

    Give those edge lines a lighter touch and let the shadows do the work.

    Practice. Practice. Practice.
