CJ and McCauley

"CJ and McCauley," 9" x 12", Graphite Pencil on Paper

CJ and his little cousin McCauley make an adorable pair!

To make this image I took two separate photos and merged them together. This way the tilted head of CJ and upturned face of McCauley were able to come together in a very charming composition. To make the merging of these two photographs look more realist, I had to use some artistic license and create the blanket wrapped around the baby and adjust the material on CJ’s sleeve.

Due to the endearing subject matter, the background shadows were kept relatively light.  This also enabled their dark sparkling eyes to really stand out. Also, CJ’s dark gray sleeve creates a nice frame at the bottom of the image.
