Christ Child Studies

7 Oct

I’ve been putting off starting on the Child part of this year’s Madonna & Child because it means learning how to make a baby’s face.

After a very satisfying trial-and-error session, I really thought I’d learned a few things about baby proportions, and how to sculpt cuteness. But when I rolled out this sketch for the wife and kids it cleared the room in about five seconds. “Hey … where’d everybody go?” I said, holding it up like it was a tube of Pepsodent an old TV ad. I’m told there’ll be nightmares for a week.
