I was explaining to Tammy at work today that it's hard to draw babies.
You have to go either photorealistic (working from life or a photo) or super-abstract. In-between often seems to result in weird or creepy-looking or just vaguely blech work.
Tammy herself has an extraordinarily cute baby, whose visage I used to practice this quick sketch. I think it bears out my theory, but it's good to practice drawing babies, because they help you see the qualities of cute. Also, their pictures are fun to look at.
