Charcoal Drawing by TasheenaS Charcoal Drawing by TasheenaS
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.

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. ^_^

Thanks! I'd love to create more charcoal work, as this is the only one I have done so far, and it was nearly 8 years ago. Ugh! Time sure does fly by!
