boys

I just finished this commission last weekend. a friend of mine, Terri, has twin sons who are in the military, and has long desired a "prayer portrait" of her 3 boys. 
she wanted the drawing to be of her sons as adults, and also as children. so between the 2 of us we did  little brainstorming about the composition...
and this is what came of it:


(unfortunately, it's slightly bowed, the left side turning back a bit)
 
i was nervous, at first (well, i'm always nervous when starting a piece), just because i wasn't sure, even after doing the preliminary, what the final drawing would look like. but i'm more than happy with the result, and i learned SO MUCH while doing it (again, as i always do).

here are some detail pictures...






let me know what you think!
