Help. I have gone wrong somewhere and I don't know where.

The two babies are from emailed photos but the girl and older boy are from a framed pic but the boy has a sullen face on him so I have tried to alter it to fit the rest of them but something is not right.

Any ideas on the young lad on the right?????????

Deanne, I see two things that might help. #1, the nose looks to be a little small and baby like for a child this age. #2. The mouth looks like it might not be right where it should me. Ofcourse working on the nose may address that issue as well. And maybe a little darkness under the eyes may
ing out the age of this child. Boys of this age usely have that after baseball pratice look about them.

The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Hi its nigelartist...long time no speak.

I think the picturein itself is beautiful...

Maybe the boy could be used as the focal point. He looks quite serious and mature tome...a kind of fatherly figure.

Great work again!

the noses and general shapes of the heads are good, the irises in all the eyes are disprportionate to the heads and eyes themselves. The other thing I notice right away is the lack of mid tones. I think you have a very good start, keep going
