So...it's finished, but I am not happy with the final results at all. I was even debating on posting it or not. I think the darkness of the shadows got a little weird. In the original, half of her face was hidden in shadows. I think it just looks dirty now!
Oh well. Hopefully my next drawing will turn out better!

Yet another WIP of this piece. I hope that you like it so far, tell me what you think about it (:
It's been ages since I started this drawing (the beginning of october or late september I think). I am usually not that long about finishing a drawing, but it has just been laying unfinished in my window sill for months now. However, yesterday I decided that I wanted to draw and this is what came out of it. I am almost done with it, and I will show you the finished version asap (:

HYDE ~ General's charcoal, Winsor & Newton vine charcoal
I finished this one yesterday, after working on it for the weekend. I wanted to draw this particular picture of HYDE but hadn't done it yet. I was going to do a watercolour painting of it but I think doing it with charcoal was satisfactory enough. Also I've been doing a lot of charcoal commissions irl lately and I think I've improved with it and wanted to draw something for myself to keep.
I wanted this to have a un-real/surreal look about it, especially his hair...I don't care for photorealism so that's not what I was aiming at.
