portrait study by Neivan-IV portrait study by Neivan-IV
Tried to combine the different charcoals using both their strengths to my advantage. Quite pleased with the outcome to be honest. I hope you do to because there will be more of these. :D

Charcoal sticks and conté on A3 paper.

I like her nose a lot. It's very pleasing to look at, like just a simple picture of a red-nosed teen girl asking you for help on homework. Nice!

The roughness of it all looks more human then when most do portraits. They are always so stuff and cookie cutter like. But this is amazing great work.

I wouldnt call different styles cookie cutter just different styles like more realistic for example? I see what you mean though and am very happy you enjoyed the drawing as much as I do :D

This is beautiful, I love the movement and smudging of the charcoal to distinguish her hair, and the fine bits of detail around her eyes and nose. Thank you so much for sharing this! <3

Very happy that you enjoyed this. Yeah when I found traditional charcoal sticks I was so happy how much you can play around with it. It was perfect for smooth textures like hair so its a nice fit

Define the nostrils via surrounding tones rather than sharp, dark lines. Other than that it's beautiful.

Often I do that and tried it on this one too. Didn´t look as asthetically pleasing as this version so I left it out. Thank you so much for the feedback though :D

.of course theres many ways to express art. I had always been taught and taught in different mediums to start basic and then refine. That you should be able to convey with the work at the start, that its foundation is what tugs at the soul, the details are candy. Someone can be great at detail but if they arent able to do the foundation properly then it misses the mark. Granted I just have a small very humble opinion but I think you nailed it. Never doubt that you should pursue art in some fashion for a lifetime. Lol, I hope that will stick with you over the years. I'm 60 and I denied my art for a few decades and came to regret it terribly. Don't waste your time my friend, :)

It is difficult, I was working fulltime and in animation school over my head. Started realising my folks were suffering from some age related ailments, I finally burned out. Wanting back into 3d, just not to land a job one day, that wont ever happen. But I missed it so much, the joy.

The resemblance of her to your work can be found in her early videos.

Love this. Reminds me very much of Wyeth, Im not sure which. I think the second one. 
People criticizing something like this usually have an absolute lack of talent.
