Adorable! Since there is a strong blue tint to the fabric, did you shade with skin tone pencils or use shades of blue or lavender? On my computer it looks as if you have a little tan tone around his nose and lips, but I can't really tell what hue you are shading with in much of the rest. It is very effective. Is this treasure for you or his mom?

Thank you! I used skin tones: starting with cream and gradually applying skin tones, i.e., shades of yellow and oranges. The white was necessary because of the blue background. All

I used Prismacolor colored pencils. I made it for him :-)

Sorry, the cream, or white are neutralizers to the background color
