First ever charcoal drawing.

Ok, so, here's my first ever charcoal drawing.
Not sure if it's any good compared to other's..

You have just come so far since you started here - it's incredible. I can only imagine what an artist you will be as the years roll by. You are just so good now. I really like this. I can't - ok I choose not to - do charcoal to save my life. You make it look effortless.

Ah thank you so much, Chanda! I do find it quite difficult to draw with charcoal, but I'm pretty pleased with this result!

I absolutely HATE working with charcoal. I think it's because I am - anal.

Even charcoal pencils bother me. I don't like the feel of the pencil on the paper or the sound. It's like fingers on a chalkboard. I also don't like how messy charcoal can be.

What I do love and admire is somebody who can work with charcoal and put out a beautiful piece of artwork like you have just done. This is beautiful as it is but add to that the fact that this is your FIRST charcoal? It's doubly impressive and a piece you should be very proud of.

Ah thank you! Don't get me wrong, I will be going back to graphite now and again, but I prefer charcoal only because it doesn't reflect when you look at the drawing from each angle.

Your words are too kind Chanda! Thank's again. I just wish I could actually sell some, haha.

Oh I have no doubt you will soon. You keep it up and you will be getting more commisisons than you will know what to do with.

I do like the overall effect of charcoal to be sure...lol..I just can't work with it!

Nice work

Sarah that is a really good job. I have been working with charcoal for a few years now. I am new to the forum so, give me some time and I will show some of my work.

THANK YOU!
