This is my first attempt at doing a charcoal drawing. I used a picture as a reference (Sailor Jupiter's Sera Myu actress, Marie). The original picture is copyrighted to the company/photographer who took the picture, which is Starlight Productions. (That's the company it had on the picture I looked at). I drew this so I could have something to hang on the white walls of my apartment. Completed when I was 16 years old.

Thanks!! ^_^ When I first used it, I kept smearing it all over the place (including accidentally on my face, haha), so don't feel bad. I learned though that the best subjects to do in charcoal are those with a strong contrast in light and dark/shadows. The other "normal" contrasted pieces are done in pencil. Trust me, if I tried to do a normal contrasted piece in charcoal, it wouldn't be so pretty. ^_^
