Gosh I just love the way you draw Varian. He's so cute! How do you draw him? Or children, in that matter?

Uhm, usually with drawing kids in general I usually follow my three (4??) rules for them: rounder, smaller, and softer (+ bigger eyes). 

Rounder, smaller facial features with softer expressions, and for me I give them bigger eyes. With additional shines.

In comparison to adults who have sharper, longer features.

However, I’m not very good with representing their age correctly, as Kidquisitor!Varian appears younger or older (depending) than what I intended his age to be. But that’s what practice is for ! :D 

It’s also always good to look at references every now and then to help you through the age process of your characters !

Hope this helps <’:
