Sketching children for retail advertising is entirely-different from other fashion sketching, but the fashion artist must be qualified to do both.

Never sketch children in sophisticated poses, but strive for natural, pert, impudent attitudes and expressions. They look more natural when engaged in some game, or when running or occupied with a toy or other trivial. Get a peppy childish look to them, a few freckles across the nose may aid that impudent look.

There are a few general characteristics of children to bear in mind. Their faces are round and chubby; their eyes are set far apart; their lips are full and pouty; their noses, short and turned up; their chains, small and undeveloped; cheeks, round and full; and the space between the nose and mouth is far spaced. The legs and arms of small children are fat and chubby and usually shapeless.
