BW Value Sketch gone colored

I can't stop playing--I made my BW value sketch into a color sketch on Artrage and then into a Thanksgiving card. On the color version on Artrage, I used "markers, paint and chalk." I forgot to mention on the previous post that the original value sketches on Newsprint wouldn't fit on my scanner. That's why my signature and notes are cut off.

Two Marker Value Sketches

These are my first ever intentional value sketches, done quickly with marker on newsprint.

Unfortunately, the subtle tones did not scan well, and the ink scanned much darker than the pencil. But oh well, here it is.

Trying for a likeness

I would like to learn to be better at likenesses because I'd like to illustrate my own children's books. This is a quick sketch of BB last night while he was talking and moving around (not holding still.) From life.
