Aww this is so cute! I like the way the blanket, or fabric, is textured. The expression on the baby is just priceless and pretty much perfect. The eyes are very full of light and life so great work there. The little hair spike is nice, I like the highlights and shadows there. The little butterfly adds a touch more of innocence.
On the negative side I think the shadows on the fingers are a little to dark. This could just be me, but that's what I thought. Please keep in mind I am not a painter myself so I can only critique on what it looks like not the technique used. I hope this critique is okay with you, Bubbles
