La Nenita!!!

Well, she’s my mom. This has been the hardest I’ve ever done. I don’t know how many sketches I made. I tried different approaches, but I wasn’t happy with it. Finally a little help form a great artist, who showed me a little thumbnail with his thought was enough to start painting, and after a couple of tries this one came out. I’m very happy with the result.

This was the sketch that helped me a lot. Thanks man!
