Charcoal, carbon pencil and white pastel on Canson grey paper.

Was a bit of an experiment in technique so any suggestions/critique is welcome. Cheers

Hi everyone. Sorry I'm not on DA much and just caught up with comments. Thanks very much for all your kind messages! It's a bit humbling, I'm not really sure that they are justified though, I think you're all just being nice :-)

I've seen a few comments saying there are photographic qualities. This is a bit amusing because I don't see that at all, and it was never my intention, I was just experimenting by going into a bit of detail.
Personally I prefer drawings to look like drawings, paintings to look like paintings and photographs to look like photographs. Not to give the illusion that it is something that it is not. So perhaps in that respect I failed a little bit :-)

So feel free to throw some criticism out there too, I'm keen as to learn!

But thank you everybody! And have a nice day!
