ya, i've been hearing/reading that a lot :D should be good to work with (i've only every painted with acrylic) although oils do take longer to dry :( (patience is a virtue i guess...)

Sometimes I'll cover my paintings with newspaper. It doesn't smudge or anything like that.

:) i think the shading turned out best in this piece 'cause i did black hair, which gave me more to work with in shading throughout the face (like a charcoal palette) thank you!

Brilliant drawing dear. I disagree with the user below. I think the outline is quite nice sort of adds a cartoonish dimension but its still very life like. nice work again :3

I started doing life drawings in my course recently. Its quite challenging. I had no idea. I tried with charcoal but im not that great with it anyway. I have some nice pictures despite. I may post a few.

totally post some :) i'd love to see them!
i do like charcoal, but haven't felt like getting super messy lately...
so i've been using 4B pencils mostly, maybe try 4B?
(it's kinda soft like the charcoal you probably use)

I like your proportions however the heavy outline I am not seeing a purpose for. Otherwise a great drawing!
