Me: what is this??
Mom: umm…a parrot??
Me: thank GOD!!
So this is my first attempt at working with charcoal. It’s one of my favourite mediums but i could never muster courage to try working with it as i always feared i will end up dipping my whole room in gray scale (which actually happened).
The Texture of charcoal itself is a little difficult to handle.
I ruined a pencil in process of preparing the weapon until i figured (thanks to google) you cannot sharpen them with traditional sharpener.
You actually scrape it with a blade/cutter and then smooth it with sand paper ( i tried using a nail filer, but threw it away in 2 seconds because i actually am that lazy).
Well. This is how the spear looked like in the end!
And then went on to draw my 1st charcoal drawing.
Mom’s answer provided some Satisfaction.. at least it’s recognizable.
I hope the parrot agrees..
