I drew my oldest baby... Just had a bit of a hard time w/ his eyebrows, and the coloring. He's black w/ white eyebrows and beard... Had no clue how to make that show well... Any suggestions??

You are off to a great start. If you can post the photo then I will be able to help you better. Would that be possible?

what you need to do is look for the directions of the hair and the subtle differences in tone.

I have done one of his eyebrows for you so you can see how I would do it.

Also notice how dark I have made the background to enable enough contrast for the light hair.

Nolan, the hair on the top of the nose appears to flow down all the way.  Is this the case?

He's lovely Kattnerd. Your drawing thus far is excellent, keep on one step at a time.  :clap:

The dark background definately makes the eyebrow stand out. Gives it that 3D look.  O0

Kelley, I am presuming you are talking about the bridge of the nose? If so yes it does look like it

You have captured "Killian" very well.  Keep up the drawing and you'll find you get better with ech one.
