I made this portrait of a very nice girl that I saw in a photo. after a bit of time I tried to use the fixative spry and unfortunately the drowing became darker so now it's a bit uglier than that , but initially it was like that.

Re: Girl-charcoal

Gosh, I find charcoal some of the most tedious materials to work with. Kudos for even working with it.

Re: Girl-charcoal

Unfortunately one of the side effects of fixative is that the majority of products on the market will darken your efforts. Don't let it put you off!

reverseengineering - I'm curious to know why you find charcoal tedious?

Re: Girl-charcoal

Not familiar with using charcoal, so would be unfair for me to comment on the merits or otherwise of this drawing medium. But would love to have seen it before the application of fixative. Well Done!!! Breath
