I keep coming back to this one... it really is one of my favorite favorites. If you did this from a staged photograph, it's extremely well done. If you did this from imagination, even more impressive. The composition, technique, execution and subject matter are all reflections of a true accomplishment. As one of those thousand dreams, thank you for this viewing experience.
Wow, I couldn't believe that was a drawing when I first saw this picture. You really hit the shadows, light and skin texture so it looks perfectly real. And all that just with charcoal... I know I was pretty clumsy when I tried to draw with it, I think that it's not so easy to do a good picture with charcoal. Well congrats on amazing job!
