PlastikStar's 'My Dark.' by amberj8 PlastikStar's 'My Dark.' by amberj8
A3 charcoal drawing of model and fellow Deviant:

:iconplastikstars:
*PlastikStars

drawn and posted with her permission. She's one of my all-time favorite models on DeviantART, with great versatility and beauty, so I really put a bit of work into this picture. I like to think I've done justice to her with this piece, though it's always difficult. Also, this is my first attempt drawing bone, and it was a nasty challenge but well worth the effort.

Here's the link to the original: [link]
And here's the link for the photographer, who has really captured a great shot here: The Divine Emily Fine [link]

Hope you like it. :)

Thank you. :) Your own work is very impressive...I think charcoal is a little under-appreciated in favor of graphite, so it's always great to see someone else who likes working with it. :)

Thanks so much...although I think the photographer deserves most of the credit. It's a really nice photo, and it made for a great challenge. I think it transfers well into charcoal, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. :)

Incredible work! Your mastery of the rather fiddly medium of charcoal is breathtaking; and the use of it has really paid off in the intense atmosphere the high contrast has created. Kudos!
