Hello everybody I'm new here.
I like to draw with charcoal and some people tell me I do it well.
I would like to get (a lot) better and hope with feedback from you guys I can have te motivation to do so.

Here are some pictures I recently made.

Welcome. I too have not been a member of the forum long, but have already received some good feedback from others.

Your work has nice minimalistic impressionist qualities to it. The simplistic lines are very suggestive. It is as your work has an Asian brush painting influence.

I would be interested in finding out from you what direction you want to head. Abstract or more realistic? It will help when trying to offer recommendations.

Thanks Secz!
I allso had some remarks from friends about Asian influences... I guess, subconcious I am influenced.
Ik would like to go a little more realistic, but keeping it simplistic.
I would like to learn some more techniques for a charcoal stick (not the pencils) are fairly rough tools and being very detailled is difficult.
For the next I am looking for a foot, signifying a journey. maybe walking in sand or something, do you have some reference pictures?

Very Asian. Maybe look at some more Asian works and just go for it.
