I guess you still have it. lol You did very well. It's very creepy in the sense that it looks so realistic. So where's the body of the person it belonged to? *laughs* Just kidding.... we're all entitled to our little secrets. lol I think you did a great job with the shading with the charcoal. I for one, truly appreciate the effort you put into this because I know how hard it is to work with charcoal or pastels or whatever. (Not to mention the fact that it's so darn messy.) I once did a charcoal portrait of John Lennon for my mother . I think I was 14. She ended up losing it somewhere though. Go figure. I give you much praise for experimenting with different styles. Keep up the good work.
Makes you wonder where the rest of the body is, huh, BogusRed? Tee, hee. hee. We all have our little secrets, don't we, Dennis? Perhaps that is what happens to the fallen players in your RPG. *laughs* Just kidding. You are truly a master of your craft, Dennis.
Oh have no doubts doing this one was a very messy process. I think I made the bridge of the nose a bit too big though as someone commented that this guy must of had one hell of a honker, hehehehe. I may start working with watercolors again also.
I didn't even notice the nose until you pointed it out. No pun intended. I guess it does look a little elongated, but, that's okay. Maybe he was related to Triple H . lol! I would LOVE to see what you can do with watercolors. I think watercolors are the most beautiful kind of paint because of how soft and subtle they are. Oh, please do start using them! I think your pieces would be brilliant!
Thank you Robin, i'm actualy doing another skull study on this same paper. It's a bull skull this time though. I'm also doing a few mundane pots and stuff to practice with charcoal. Maybe i'll post them?
