This Girl is on Fire

Girl on Fire (acrylic paint, charcoal pencil)
Last week we drew portraits from pictures. I chose this picture of a woman because of the interesting angle it has. I had made this Background earlier with acrylic paint and watercolor so the page didn't seem so empty when I started to draw. This drawing was made with charcoal pencil so I had to use some fixative for preventing smudging. The charcoal pencil is really nice to draw with because it's more accurate and doesn't make ass much mess as traditional charcoal. I think that the end result looks like a woman who is standing in the flames and watching you. That's something I didn't plan at all. Aren't surprises great?
