Thanks Chanda. I'm still playing around with various techniques and pencils. Lately I have been using Prismacolor charcoal pencils instead of the usuall General's brand.

I think you're a very talented artist. This piece captures the innocence of a child and looks so realistic. I absolutely love your work! Very breath taking.

Really love the softness of this piece, there is just something special about a charcoal portrait. There is so many things I like about this piece, hair, eyes, mouth, the line work...okay the whole piece.

I looked through your work and wanted to ask if you ever heard of the broken line effect, an effect I have been using for more than thirty years now and think your work would be perfect for the BLE. What it is where a line is insinuated by well placed start of a line and it breaks off and then is continued on to frame the subject.

This effect can be subtle or drastic...it all depends on the piece. I can see hints of this in this piece and some of your other works...regardless your work always Hi-Comp work and thought it may just add another element that you may want to consider in your work or something to explore.

Over the top work as usual, great piece here...
