sleeping max


This is one of those instances where I know what I've drawn, but I'm not sure if it's that apparent to you, the viewer. I tried to maintain a delicacy here because of the subject, but, in hindsight, I think I could have used a few more lines.

I can totally tell what you've drawn- and it's SOOOO cute. Good job- and I think the delicacy is appropriate.

I love these types of drawings - nice, light touch.

Bambi-really. said...

no, it's fantastic as it is—perfect simplicity.

Anita said...

Oh I think you have the perfect amount of lines, carefully balanced with a lot of heart!
Bravo!

I wouldn't change one single thing. What a sweet, sweet drawing of such a tender moment. I think your use of line perfectly captures the delicacy of the moment... really beautiful!

The first thing I thought, before reading the text, was how envious I am of your lines. Especially the way you use so few lines and yet achieve so much character, detail etc. It definately does not need amnymore. It is perfect.

(I have just been on Flickr and my first reaction, when I saw this drawing, was to click on 'Fave', in the top left hand corner of the drawing. Doh)

So much said in your lines Suzanne. It is perfect as is. You've captured such a tender moment. :)

Annie said...

yep, it's clear to me too. So sweet.

I just simply love your line drawings! You have the ability to say so much with the minimum of lines..I'm also thinking of your previous post..the "You say tomato" sketch where you've captured character with such great linework. I admire you for that!

I love your economy of line - it is what gives this drawing its charm. Don't change a thing.

There's no doubt at all about this drawing. You can see everything exactly, it's a beautiful drawing of a lovely subject.

So sweet!
Lovely :o)

It's a beautiful drawing, Suzanne.

And I like very much your blog. So, I linked your blog in my sidebar. Is it okay for you?

It's perfect! The baby's eyes and the little hand on the other side... Anyway, I'd not be so sure with a drawing of mine. It's very hard to to find the right moment to stop.

I think you had one of the toughest angles with the child's face against the shoulder, and yet, in a few (and confident, as always) lines, you rendered his expression so well -- the eyes, the nose.
