Double Charcoal Portrait

Another charcoal commission completed!

It took way longer than I thought it would. I struggled with the section where her black hair is next to his blonde hair. Blonde hair and blue eyes can be difficult to portray when using a black and white medium such as charcoal. Also, I manipulated the original photograph to make the two subjects more centered, which caused some difficulty in the shadows between their two faces.

Below the drawing is the original photograph.
