Wanted to clarify, the only smudging that was really done was to smooth out the conte crayon. It tends to pick up the texture of the paper and the board it's on, so I smudge to get it to be smooth instead of textured. For the most part all of the shading is done without smudging.

Crayons and charcoal? Man, those materials are very hard to work with. I'm stunned to see something like that from those.

Your awesome.

I'm actually beginning to prefer charcoal to pencil, it's way faster to work with and you get much better darks. The only trick is to learn how to get more subtle shading with it. I'm also not using just plain crayons. I'm using conte crayon. It's not the same as a wax crayon, similar in properties, but much easier to use.

Here's another wip, got the bull body done, all that's left is the landscape.

Here's a (mostly) final version of the drawing. I ended up making the tail much whiter to make it stand out. I'll submit a nicer pic taken with a real camera in the portal later.

So this is 99% finished. Took about 9-10 hours.

It looks awesome; I was gonna comment on the stubbyness of the legs but it looks kinda cool actually; only thing I can critique other than that (from this pic) is that the head seems a bit seperated from the body.... its a bit sharper/more detailed.... doesnt seem to be one thing if you catch my drift.
Great work though, cant wait for the finished one

Sneak peak WIP on my current print project.

Sorry for the shittiness of the photo, the copper is very shiny and it's hard enough to take a decent pic with my phones' camera

Finished painting, just need to build a frame for it.

Done with acrylic, spray paint, india ink, and a lot of varnish. Turned out pretty well.

Shirt design for someone who ended up not wanting it, so still looking for a buyer. Haven't decided on any kind of back splash or anything yet, also made the colors a bit brighter so it's different from the one I've been posting on facebook for those that stalk me.

Played around with charcoal and white acrylic in class today, really liking it. Expect more in the future.

Yeah, they need to be more turned to the right, but I was more focused on trying to get the hang of using the two mediums together. I have to do a real big piece like that, so I want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I mess up a piece by doing something dumb lol.

Yeah, unfortunately when I'm up at school I don't have much time for my personal work and then when summer comes around laziness strikes! I'm trying to be better about being productive.

Thanks guys.

Here's a quick drawing that unfortunately led to me cracking the glass screen on my laptop. Power cords are assholes.

Bought some real cheap, fantastically ugly frames at Ollies the other day. Banged out a small painting for one of them today.

Here's it in the frame.

And since my friend doesn't lurk on NG, here's a WIP of a poster I'm making him for his birthday. Still need to work out a background, thinking he'll be chased by some cop cars or something.
