Step 1.

Start off by creating the shapes for the mother and child. These are the head guides as you can see. Sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the body guide for the baby.

Step 2.

Step 4.

We will now continue to draw in the hair and then work on drawing the outlining of the mother's torso.

Step 5.

Draw the additions to create her arm and hands, then draw in the shape of the baby's body which is wrapped in a cozy blanket. Don't forget to frame the opening for the baby's face as well.

Step 6.

Now you can add the line for the shirt collar and then draw the crinkle and wrinkle lines for the baby's blanket. You will also draw in the sleeping baby's face.

Now that your drawing of a mother is all cleaned up. You can proceed to color in the art and even add a nice quote to create a card. I hope you liked this lesson to help celebrate Mother's Day and one of the most important people in your life.
