This is the last of the five oil pastels that I completed this week. I just wanted to try to do something that had a futuristic look to it. As always your questions, comments, and suggestions are more than welcome. Thanks for looking.

Bravo for using oil pastels. :clap:
I can't give you much in the way of advice because I don't know much about oil pastels....wish I did, because I like their immediacy .
Have you tried colors other that black/grey for shading the skin?
I thought dark green but perhaps it , being oil pastel, might not recede enough and you might get a martian.
I'll have to try a portrait myself, I guess.
Keep posting!
