29 Faces in September - my final 4 faces

okay..charcoal messy charcoal...Sung Joon, Kim Yoo-jung and Lee Jong-suk (all Korean actors/actress) 

the painting one I just dabbed a ton of different colored acrylic paint on black paper...pressed another sheet of paper on top....pulled it apart...added Inka Gold..used the end of the paintbrush to scrape in primitive features and then added more paint

29 Faces in September Day 21 (but might be days 22, 23 and 24 since I have FOUR faces lol)

I started out with charcoal but it did not blend very well...and then I used pencil...I ended up with so much graphite on this that the paper got rough....grainy....this is a sketch of me and 3 of my sibs when we were very young

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
