Trying Charcoals

Hi Everyone,
Here is my 7th charcoal drawing, I started about a month ago. I’ve never drawn anything before and didn’t think I should ever try. But I gained confidence and I think I’ve figured it out!

But honestly, if there is critique, PLEASE feel free. I’m new to this but want to learn more. I found a photograph of a caribou on a royalty free site and drew it. I had a lot of fun and want to continue with this medium.

Well, you did beautifully, Rain, for being so new at it. I am impressed. You may want to submit it to the Member’s Minute for a nice thorough critique from Matt. I’m glad you enjoyed drawing it. Good job.

Thanks for your nice words and support. I don’t know that I’m ready for Matt’s critique! I’m a little afraid lol…but I need to step out of my comfort zone some time…maybe I’ll submit it! Thanks for the advice!

It comes out so beautifully. I love the texture of the background. Great job.
