This is my latest charcoal and gold leaf(yeah I know...gold leaf again...but what's life without a bit of gold? :P) Lesson to learn:since the leaf glue is wet I should never apply it on paper thick and with a brush but rather veeeery lightly with my finger.If thick paper gets a bubu lol:laugh::laugh:

"Hummingbird"- charcoal+gold leaf+gel pen on charcoal paper(11"x17") 2015

Excellent drawing but these people will blow smoke up your skirt all day rather than tell you the truth. The gold leaf ruins this drawing and most charcoal drawings.

Thx for your honest opinion but I do not share the same view.I think gold leaf gives more expression and complexity to the entire piece.And I am not the only artist that combines charcoal and gold leaf...look up Rebecca Yanovskaya or Yoann Lossel just to name a few.

Just.. I have tried to be patient with you.. but your rudeness is getting out of control.. I personally will ban you if you can't be kind with your responses.. I'm not saying good critique isn't viable.. but there's no need to be rude to others..

Consider this the ONLY warning I will give

Don't do me any favors I'm speaking the truth about this site and I did it without malice. If you find what I said offensive that is on you. Threats of banning just adds to the childishness of the site. So be a man.

Problem is Just.. you don't just speak "truth". You hurt people and the entire demeanor of the site with negativity and hurtful posts. There are plenty of novices here that need encouragement. There's a nice way to critique.. without being negative and harmful. That's all I'm asking. And I wasn't threatening.. I believe it's right to let someone know that their behavior is not what's expected before I just ban them.

Ignoring what Just is saying... I Like it :3 It has lot of detail ;) By the way, I agree with Just in this one, I do not like the gold leaf mixed with charcoal, but that doesn't mean it's wrong and it sucks, it's a really beautiful piece.

I kind of like the gold leaf...it's unique. I'm not sure I would like it in every charcoal piece done, but I do like it in this particular one. :vs_smile:

Oh well...that's why there are so many forms of art...each for every one of us.Many people have told me charcoal and gold leaf are a No/No and many told me it's very classy ...I personally believe it's unique.I can accept the fact that I might've worked more on the shadows and lights and give more substance on that bird body and wings...buuut the gold leaf I think is good...lol
