Just so you all know, I was taking a Drawing II class not to long ago and the main medium we worked in was charcoal. It was the first time I have ever truly worked in charcoal but have surprised myself quite well. For the past month and a half I had been working on a charcoal picture of the family dog for my parents and FINALLY finished it. It was a pain in the butt, but the results were worth it. When I get the chance I will post a picture of it.
I have already been asked if I wanted to sell it and have turned that offer down. This one picture will not be sold at all; just no possible way to price it with all that I have put into it.
I am now happy to say I love working in charcoal, even though it's messy, and am very pleased with my final work for Drawing II.
(I got an A+++ !)
