A Lucky Cookie by DarkKenjie A Lucky Cookie by DarkKenjie
NOT a PHOTO!!! lol its charcoal

I was for my last semester figure drawing class. Done with charcoal on a 18 by 24in piece of paper. I had an A but I still wanted to do this picture, so it was done for extra credit ^_^. It took 7 hours strait to complete. I hope you like it ^_^

WOW a DD thanx everyone especially to Rook22 for the suggestion!

Amazing. I think its great how you can do something completely cartoony then something very realistic. Charcoal has never worked well for me but it's probably because I rarely use it... But this is GREAT!

Your skills with charcoal drawing are great. What really captivates me , however , are the emotion in the picture. You can really feel their hardship. Words mostly escapes me. Fantastic work. You really deserved daily deviation.

You're welcome. I like this pictures atmosphere, it's theme and beyond all the caracters. It's really skillfully done and I can just rise my hat to you.

My work instead.. phf. You're flattering me. They are just a couple of pictures for my school-project. But thanks anyway, it brightened my day visibly ^^ .

ya i did, the photo was a 3 by 5 inch picture, very bad quality and then I made it blown up to a 18 by 24 piece of paper, so most is just my rendering

O...oh my gosh. I thought it was a photo at first.
I'm really amazed of this, because you're 18. It's really really awesome! No wonder it got a DD.

Now I feel hopeless. I probably won't be this good when I reach your age. D:

Kudos on the DD. I saw this image and the first thing that came to mind was the French family in 'Saving Private Ryan' as the man is trying to give his daughter to the soldiers. She didn't get a cookie though.

Beautifully done. I hope you got every point of extra credit you deserve. :D
