A child by Leuseni A child by Leuseni
First attempt to draw with charcoal pencil.
I know that hair doesn't look good, but it was too difficult for me to draw it with not sharpened pencil. It would be easier with graphite pencil :D
It was really hard for me, I didn't know how to shade with this type of pencil. But main parts, I mean the eye and mouth, looks good so I'm a little bit happy with this :)

But hair..

And the background. It's my own invention.. I know that maybe most of you won't like it, but i think that it fits my feelings when I look at the face of this child :)

Enjoy!

Thank you for such inspiring photo :)

I can't see anything wrong with the hair! Your drawing is fantastic...and for the first time with charcoal pencil! I like the background as well. How did you make the rings?

Thank you :) Firstly I'd made the background with charcoal pencil and next simply made rings with ordinary eraser :)

This is gorgeous. I actually like the hair - it moves the eye into the blurry background smoothly. As you move right to left, the detail is minimized ... it's a neat effect.

It's exactly what I wanted to make, but I don't have experience in making drawing blurry like it's on photograph so it isn't perfect :)
Thank you for nice comment :)
