Personal project, family portrait.
I am trying new things this year that are way uncomfortable for me, like entering the monthly challenge, trying to keep a tight art schedule and now making art that I am proud to putting on my wall. My wife has been asking me for a long time to make something we can hang on our wall. My usual response is I cringe and change the subject. I am trying to change that attitude. So I went through some photos of my family and decided to draw a family portrait. So far I have had a lot of fun doing this.
Before I go ahead and ink this can i please get a critique. Is there anything I need to change.
Thank you for your time

@robbery I love your goal to do new things that challenge you! And portraits can be super challenging!
Overall I think this is so great! I love that everyone looks genuinely happy and it’s drawn really nicely.
The one thing I would point out is the head of the baby seems too big. I was actually going to ask if you took it from a photo because a photo as reference can often cause an effect where stuff in the foreground becomes unusually enlarged. And babies do have large heads... just not normally larger than their parents heads
That was the only thing that stood out to me! I’m sure your wife will be so excited
@carlianne Yes, it was from a photo reference. Thanks for the critique.
