Family Portrait - Initial Sketch


I am working on a composite family portrait. I combined six people from five separate photographs. My sketching has become fairly shaggy. I think I am a colorist, and I don't really care for defining sketches in black and white. Sometimes, clients become concerned when I don't have a likeness correct in a sketch, but in truth, I hardly pay any attention to the likenesses at this point. I am just trying to fit the right sizes and shapes together.

Not knowing the family I cannot comment on the "likeness" but there is definitely some personality going on! I look forward to your coloring stage.
