First commission of the year! - Original artwork by @mayasky

3년 전

Hello everyone! 😊

Today I want to share with you my first commission of the new year! I just finished this one up a couple of days ago;


This cute little girl is the first of three portraits and I am having so much fun!


This drawing is made with chalk and charcoal on light grey fabriano paper.


When I'm drawing with charcoal I always draw with something called Nitram charcoal. It's a lot harder than your normal Willow charcoal so you can sharpen it on a fine grad sandpaper to get a thin tip that works great for detail work.


To achieve a really dark, rich value I first draw with a B- grade charcoal and then go over it with a H- grade charcoal
This way the softer charcoal gets pushed down in the paper.

"Gypsy" chalk and charcoal on Fabriano paper, size 30 x 40 cm.

I hope you are all having a great weekend! 😊❤

The ancient Mbaya Indians of the Gran Chaco in South America believed that humans originally lived underground until dogs dug them up.


Really? :D Thats a cool theory, I must say @dogfact! ;)

Dog is considered to be the only animal that loves its owner most of all and least of all - itself
