Sweet Lullaby
45.2K Views|1 Today
Dear little angel
Don't you cry
For you I'll sing
This sweet lullaby

Just when I thought
All hope was lost
So much sadness in this world
Innocence washed away

You remind me
of all the good things
the love that still exists
when I see your cute little face

So please little angel,
Don't shed a single tear
For the things that make you cry

Because of you
I stay strong
For you I sing your lullaby


For the winner of my contest. My fellow artist. My friend:
As promised a free commission of your youngest daughter. And a poem as bonus, lol. My inner poet was speaking again. :XD:
Anyway, I hope you like it! (:


This is probably to hardest drawing I've ever made! :faint:
Just when I though I had finished the most difficult part to draw, I stumbled upon a new problem.

Started with her face, then the hair, teddy bear and last but certainly not lot least: the clothing! But I'm happy with the outcoming.

In fact, this drawing started to grow on me.
I started to love it with all my heart. :heart:
Nothing more to say. Hope you guys like it too.

Stuff I used:
  • 4H, 2H, H, HB, B, 2B & 3B 0.5mm mechanical pencils

  • tissues & tortillions for blending

  • kneaded eraser

  • Pergamos Skizzenblock paper

  • reference image

  • Time spent: approx 20 to 25 hours


    Previous work in progress can be seen here:
    WIP 1
    WIP 2
