Nephew Portrait

I decided to share something new to this blog. I like charcoal drawing :-)
This is my little nephew after having a bath.
At the drawing lessons at the university, we used to have vertical stands. It's a lot more comfortable to draw like this! That's why I picked this table :-)
Unfortunately, I realized I could take a picture after I drew the whole face...
I use a soft plastic rubber. It's useless for normal pencils but it takes the charcoal very well (when it's not a huge layer) and doesn't damage the paper.
But here you can see the progress - how the bathrobe fur looks like before and after blurring.
The finished portrait. I know he has got manga-like eyes :-D
But I didn't have enough strength to wipe them out and start over.
