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
