You call this a smudgy mess?? Well if so, then I love your smudy messes! You seem to have done just fine in controlling your shading and skin tones, to me, but hey- what do I know?
For some reason I kind of like how her breasts are off proportion- makes her seem more real. All of your angels are so beautiful! And I love her wings- and the halo is a nice touch. Ian Paul Houston
replies: "The uh... proportions... sort of threw me off, when I first drew it... but believe it or not, the model for this piece really is shaped like that. Even still, I liked her look a lot, and I fell in love with the idea of an angel having flaws, just like the rest of us."

Dayum... i wish I was shaped like that... the hotness astounds me lol.... wow did I really just say that about a drawing?... i am so in need of a life... anyway... you so called "smudgy mess" is damn near a masterpiece... the shading is great and her pose is alluring.... YAY! Ian Paul Houston
replies: "Wow, thanks for the comment!You'll be happy to know I'm currently working on another charcoal piece that is turning out wonderfully... it has been many moons in creation... it's about 7 feet tall and 8 feet wide! I'll have to figure out a way to get an image of it on my computer, so I can post it here."

Looking good bro. She's hot and well done with charcoal. I know what you mean about the dangers of carcoal. DOn't fret though, you've done great

yeeaah charcoal is an ass!
i use it all the time at college, and although you say you had trouble, this looks very clean to me. do you use a putty rubber, they are very useful!? i alwasy find that resting the drawing hand on a covering piece of paper keeps it away from the drawing, but it still snudges slightly.
not perfect, but it may help?
i love the tonal shaidng on this one, especially her breasts and shoulders. i love how light works on the upper torso, it’s so much fun to depict.
