Charcoal Owl

Author Comments

I nice little owl in charcoal (and prismacolor colored pencils for the eyes.)

Let me know what you think!

more sketches/rougher work here:


This is what I call art

I'm not sure if you made a grid on the paper and used a photo as a reference, but even then you have one hell of a understanding on how to apply charcoal. It's so clean with such a smudgy medium haha.

CameronMc responds:

Hah no grid, but I did sketch it out with a graphite pencil before drawing with charcoal.
I also used charcoal pencils (black and white) on gray paper, so I managed to stay relativity clean.

Yeah I thought this was a photo!
Love the lighting and its kinda fuzzy/ blurred which makes it very realistic!

CameronMc responds:

Yeah, I took this picture with my ipod camera if you can beleive it, so that's why it's so blurry.

I'm glad you like it!

WOW! :D I love it! Great work, I personally love charcoal works, I have a two point perspective piece I have on my blog, that was a lot of fun to do.

CameronMc responds:

Charcoal is a super fun but very messy medium! Good luck and I'm glad you enjoyed it!
