i have a lot of sleepless nights and boring days Smiley it's the method to my madness.. anyways, these are just some different photos i had on my computer of my work.. i'd love to hear your opinions Smiley


 


this ones done in chalk and tends to smear a lot Sad bummer..

and this one was part of a competition thing i did... i actually did draw the skull but was experimenting with designs and didn't want to keep drawing it over and over again so i photocopied it and this is just one of the things i did with it

ooo, i love them all!

(by the way, there's a fixative spray you can get to spray on chalk/pastel drawings to stop them from smudging.)

lol. Make sure you are spraying about 10" away from your piece. This way, the spray won't be as concentrated.
