Hey everyone. Just wanted to say a big THANK-YOU for all the birthday well-wishes. :) I was looking through my gallery and noticed I've been a bit lazy with posting new stuff. I have a few new pieces that I just haven't gotten around to putting up yet, so I'll try to get to them in the next few days. I really appreciate all the comments and encouragement with my art, so thanks a lot. I hope the coming year will be a great one. :)
Cheers.

Hi all. I'm starting to get a few pics in the gallery now, so here's Amber's little intro. I've been drawing all my life, gradually improving and learning new skills. Like many, I'm self-taught, so my style and skill-level are constantly evolving. I started out in graphite (which I still use a lot), but have more recently started exploring charcoal, pastels, water-colors and the like. DeviantART is the most amazing site, and it's a little intimidating posting my work with so many brilliant artists out there. I really appreciate your comments and visits...it's very validating. If anyone has a picture or person they'd like to suggest I try my hand at, by all means send me an email and I'll give it a look. Commission work is also very welcome. I should be posting new stuff every week or so, so don't be a stranger. :) ThanX.

Incredible
I know firsthand how much patience and skill is required to do details in charcoal. How long have u been learning and doing charcial portraits?

Wow Amber you are truly a brilliant artist. You have an amazing gallery. Love all of your works. Would you mind telling which tools do you use for your artworks. I mean what brand of charcoal, paper, anything else?  The way you use charcoal is just outstanding.

Thanks so much. :) Glad you like my work. To answer your question, I use Artwerx charcoals for most of my work...they're about the cheapest charcoal pencils I can get, but I find them to be better than any others I've tried. I use blending stumps, tortillions and cotton balls for most of the shading.
