Mother's journey by dloraas Mother's journey by dloraas
Charcoal-drawing... this is the second drawing i've done with charcoal, and i have to say i get the taste for it more and more :D

Edit: i've uploaded a different picture of it.. seems the settings i'm using on the scanner messes up the higlights (they get burnt out - or something like that - its an issue of white-balance or something) you can see it on this scan to on the girls cheek and some of the mothers hair... i might have to use a camera instead :/

size : 23x33 cm (9"x13" - i think)
tools: [link]

ref.: a photo i found on the big ol' 'net somewhere - some collection of great photos or something. it said nothing 'bout who the photographer was... but the file was named "about love by sava" ... tried finding where it came from, but havn't been successful so far :/ .. so if anyone know please do tell :D

Any constructive feedback would be great as this charcoal-thingy is quite new for me :D

and many thanks to *disdaindespair ([link]) for good advices on charcoal so far :love:

never tried charcoal before, but it seems to be pretty amazing (at least on your drawings;))

This is amazing. Charcoal is tricky when you're used to graphite - I still can't figure it out, but I'll get there. You've done very well, congrats.

Thanks :) try faber-castel's charcoal-pencils ( or any other hotpressed charcoalpencils with oil) ... They behave just like graphite ( just harder to erase) and you Get the same dark value you'll Get from other charcoaltypes/pencils... Makes the switch from graphite go a little more smooth... At least it did for me ;)
