Goth with Violin by JoeVeen Goth with Violin by JoeVeen
So here it is - my first charcoal illustration!

Overall, I really enjoyed working with the medium - it's messy, but forgiving, which is perfect for me. My only real complaint is that it tends to blend and flatten a bit when Workable Fixative is applied. Is there a better fixer/sealer for this type of work? Crystal Clear?

Actual size: 14x18

Special thanks to mjranum-stock for the great photo reference, which can be found here: [link]

i think this drawing is beautiful. i love the contrast in the drawing, but the right hand looks a bit too skeletal than the left hand. anyways it is beautiful.

NICE. Right hand and wrist get a little awkward, but minor considering the execution of the rest of the piece. Well done.
