The Moon by alifann The Moon by alifann
Charcoal sketch + charcoal powder. This was going to be a painting but then school started.


Check out more of my charcoal drawings and paintings on www.ivanalifan.com

Blog is something I'm working on and trying to update my process.

Amazing work.  And I like the title of this one.  The Moon.  It makes me feel as if I can see outside the periphery of the paper/canvas.  I know how dark the night is ... I know where the moon is located ... I can picture it penetrating the window ... and I can feel the symbiotic relationship she has with the moon.

Well, I have not been here for a while, but I noticed my comment from last year, and I have to say - I really dropped a stinker ion this one .I wish I could remove it , but I can't so here goes...

I sincerely apologize for doubting your skills and question your work,I see you chose a high road and decided not to response to my turd of an opinion,which just shows you are a person of quality.I spent last year practicing heavy in digital medium(not even close to your level), but for me skills with real paint and charcoal are ,and always will be a thing to behold.
Again, I hope you will not think more of this blunder and I wish you many accomplishments in your career. Perhaps someday I will have a chance,  to appreciate some of your work up close.
Take care.

You must not be an artist or at least have an eye for this kind of stuff because it's extremely obvious that this was drawn.

Quite the contrary.I know how to manipulate an image so it looks like it's drawn.That's why it helps to post steps when final is so close to the source.It shows who is who .But I'm not trying to start a witch hunt.Cheers.

Скажи, вот этой динамике - ей вообще учат, или художник должен сам как-то понять, как все эти размытые быстрые линии направлять? я такое замечаю только у людей с худ образованием, из чего решил, что этому можно научится, есть ли какие-нибудь книги?

This is probably my absolute favourite charcoal drawing from you. Just the way you
drew the hair is amazing enough. Did you use any reference for this one
or did you draw from your head? Anyways, you are amazing.

Such skill in another media I'm still struggling with! Practice makes perfect. Thank you for inspiring me! Charcoal powder, huh? I'll have to look into how that is used in art.
