Charcoal drawing using beautiful friend, Alessandra. I've been planning to do this drawing for a long time and happy to have it completed.
It was interesting drawing up the braids, strange how my brain found it that complicated.
You can see the reference here:

It was basically a normal portrait, adding the braids and feathers to give her a native feel.

This is really beautiful and elegant. Do you start of by covering the paper in charcoal, or do you just build up layers?

Thank you.
I build up layers (:
