Sketch: Chelsea

Pencil, 5½×3½ in. » ©2009 Sharon Rosa

Based on one of the characters from Scott Sigler’s latest novel, Contagious.

I clearly need to get my hands on some decent reference photos of small children – Chelsea is five, but the youngest kid i’ve spent any time around lately is eleven. I know some of Chelsea’s proportions are off, but i’m not sure which ones. It’s going to be bugging me for a bit and i’m sure some parent will be tempted to call the cops after catching me staring at eir toddler in the grocery store, trying to figure out what the proper arm-to-tummy size ratio is.

Maybe next time i should just draw Betty.
