This is really beautiful! The face shadings are perfect. Check out my pencil sketches, it'll take some time for them to be approved and displayed though.

Well...I start by finding a photo that I'd to draw, preferably in black and white because it's easier to see shading. I really try to focus on the different shapes of whatever I'm drawing, especially when drawing a face. With this particular drawing I focused on things like the way her head was tilted and how that would affect the placement of her features and the angles that created. I hope my small amount of knowledge helps; I’m fairly amateur myself and drew this face under the guidance of a professional art instructor. Good luck on your charcoal drawings!

Like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes."

This is very realistic looking

This is certainly one of my favorites: "I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes." -2 Samuel 6:22

Oh my gosh, I love this. You can see the pain just leaping of the page. You're attention to detail and lighting is really something! You add something to your work, such a lifelike quality, that I rarely see. I really enjoy your work. I'd love to see more of your work!

God bless,
