I imagine they look great in color on Cushy Pen, but there is something I find quite neat about the black and white versions you share over here, PD.
I think I see what you mean about the proportions, but I liked the overall look it gave to the pic; everything seemed to come out a little "puffier", which actually works pretty well with the AB's poofy diaper and hairstyle. I got the impression the AB is a pretty big girl in person and her mommy is bigger from looking at this one, for one reason or another, but I like the contrast when someone big can be little on the inside, and she certainly looks cute tugging on her mommy's skirt like that!
"Awwww, sweetie, I know you'd like to be able to leave the house and meet new people, but I can't let you until you get your bladder and sphincter under control. I'm so sorry, but you're mommy's little sweetheart until that day ... let's get you into your bib and highchair for some lunchy-munchies, OK, diddumms? Now where did I put that ex-lax?"
I must say that I always enjoy your experimental sense within your artwork. I'm not an artist myself, but I find several points of interest that I just adore. The head is the first thing: the eyes, the slightly upturned nose, the pacifier and the hair style all make for a wonderfully adorable face. The position of the girl is also worth noting; It fits perfectly within the adult baby fantasy mindset, a projection of being small and dependent on someone bigger. This is also a position that I rarely see in AB artwork in general, which is a shame since it works so well. I think the most subtle touch that I like the most would be how the diaper is slightly pushed into the right leg of the mother. For such a small feature, it adds a great deal to the picture overall; a reminder of how innocently bothersome a needy child really is, and how little we can really fault them for wanting a parent's constant affection. When you point them out, there are indeed a few flaws, but I'm happy to say that with my initial view, all I felt was delight and adoration. The successes of the image far outweigh the flaws in my mind.
I've seen much of your work over the years, and I do hope you'll be able to keep at it. My best wishes to your lasting happiness, my dear, and to a better and brighter tomorrow.
