Charcoal sketch + charcoal powder. This was going to be a painting but then school started.

Check out more of my charcoal drawings and paintings on www.ivanalifan.com

Blog is something I'm working on and trying to update my process.

Amazing work.  And I like the title of this one.  The Moon.  It makes me feel as if I can see outside the periphery of the paper/canvas.  I know how dark the night is ... I know where the moon is located ... I can picture it penetrating the window ... and I can feel the symbiotic relationship she has with the moon.

Well, I have not been here for a while, but I noticed my comment from last year, and I have to say - I really dropped a stinker ion this one .I wish I could remove it , but I can't so here goes...

I sincerely apologize for doubting your skills and question your work,I see you chose a high road and decided not to response to my turd of an opinion,which just shows you are a person of quality.I spent last year practicing heavy in digital medium(not even close to your level), but for me skills with real paint and charcoal are ,and always will be a thing to behold.
Again, I hope you will not think more of this blunder and I wish you many accomplishments in your career. Perhaps someday I will have a chance,  to appreciate some of your work up close.
Take care.

Great atmosphere and value, I like the implied forms hidden by the light.

You must not be an artist or at least have an eye for this kind of stuff because it's extremely obvious that this was drawn.

Quite the contrary.I know how to manipulate an image so it looks like it's drawn.That's why it helps to post steps when final is so close to the source.It shows who is who .But I'm not trying to start a witch hunt.Cheers.
