How to Draw Small Children – spoken tutorial

Cindy, who supports me on Patreon, asked why her drawing of a two year old looked more like a six year old – It’s a common problem.

Two year olds are beyond being babies and toddlers, but they are not grown up into being independent kids. There is a lot of growth in that year – and a lot of tantrums as they force their personalities on the world! They still have baby fat and cute baby proportions, but they are transitioning into being kids too.

So much to think about – If you really want to draw kids, you need to draw a lot of kids! In this video I manipulate Cindy’s beautiful watercolour to try and get somewhere near the right proportions to analyse the problem, then I draw a two year old from my imagination – or memory – to explain further.
