Smoke'n shadows by alegreghi Smoke'n shadows by alegreghi
I think this piece is a little step forward in my improvement as an artist, and this means a lot to me. I hope i can do a little step like this one in every piece in the future. The wonderful reference i found in a wonderful photographer gallery :iconavotius: . If you have some time take a look, because he have a great eye and sensitivity. My reference was this one [link] .
I use charcoal, conté pencils (black and white) in card paper.

Please FULL VIEW....

This piece won the "Big BronzeMedal" prize in the "Salão de Arceburgo" in 2007

I think this is great. Love how the broad strokes give it character. really good shading. I can offer a bit of critique if you want? I say you need the smoke to be a bit more pronounced, and should refract more light, especially where it ought to be covering up his hand. Other than that I don't think you could do anything else to it

oh one other thing, you could sharper up the lines on the hand and pipe. since they are closest to the "viewer" they ought to be the clearest part of the image. i hope none of that sounded arrogant or anything, im just not very good at making a critique sound nice... :)

This is great... you want advanced critique, but I cannot see any ways to improve this drawing. I love the detail you put into his coat and the wrinkles on his face.

Thank you very much! I'm very happy with your comment because you are the first one in DA who said something about the coat. For me that is the best part of this work.
