29 Faces in September - Day 15 - charcoal

Day 15 - charcoal - my version of "Little Gerda" from Sulamith W├╝lfing's illustrations from Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen - no where near her quality...but something to strive for. Her illustrations are so wonderful...

29 Faces in September - Day 14 - Back to charcoal

 This is how he started out....lighter...I actually ended up making it darker...think I like it better darker..it is more dramatic. I chose Kim Woo-bin because he has very unique and extreme features...and I really like him. He is a South Korean actor/model. I am testing out applying charcoal over textured surfaces as well..to make clothing and sweaters look textured

29 Faces in September - Day 9 - back to charcoal

Still working on this one....it is South Korean actor Jang Hyuk as his role in "Fated to Love You" playing Lee Gun (an incredible drama if you have not ever watched it)
