This stands out at first to me as dark, morbid and gothic, but there's a flip side. Her eyes suggest hope thanks to the faint twinkle. Her "Mona Lisa"-like smile also reinforces that hope. The streaks and shading draw you in, and while at first you feel depressed, you are then pleasantly surprised by the eyes and smile. Once that is noticed, you begin to feel a warm and inviting emotion as if she is inviting you to come out into the rain (suggested by the streaking and shading) and slow dance with her. As for the technical side of my critique, you have outdone yourself with the use of hard and soft lines mixed in with willow charcoal shading. Along with the use of an eraser for making the highlights, it really promotes the conveying of emotion, and simply get lost in the drawing. You have truly mastered the use of charcoal. This is a very lovely drawing and beautiful I might add. I believe the old saying "never judge a book by it's cover" is an understatement to the meticulous and careful planning that made this drawing possible. I have no suggestions for you in technique because you have truly mastered the medium.

I absolutely love this Drawing. It is a very beautiful capture of Emotion and human features. I like it also because of its personality that weighs on you; a Crying/Sad feeling. I will be adding this to my favorites right away! Also, I am adding this art to my list is because of the originality. I have never seen a charcoal drawing as this! The technique in the lips, eyes, and nose is mystifying. The Impact, Vision, Originality, and technique are amazing, I hope you make many, many more pieces like this because I will be watching To see what more beautiful Drawings you have to offer.
