Warchild II by amberj8 Warchild II by amberj8
Charcoal portrait on A3 watercolor paper. I absolutely love the original photo this was drawn from, which you can see here: indiae.deviantart.com/art/wake…
There's so much intensity in the eyes, which I enjoy drawing a lot, and it made the hours of painstakingly doing all the fiddly little bits worth it in the end. I know I'm still not close to matching the original, but I still think it came out ok. :)

Wonderful work, somehow you have made the hands and face look like they are smeared in blood, which when using charcoal is incredible. (ps. I think it is actually better than the original :D) - love it :)

Paul's right here, I too feel it's Better than the original. The photo is awesome but to capture what you have in charcoal, is really good. The blood does look like blood.

You under estimate yourself, stop, believe!
