scary monsters by Ziggster scary monsters by Ziggster
um this is based on one of my all time fovourite pictures of bowie. I had to draw it to put it on my wall hehe, but unfortunately I couldn't really capture his expression..

At first I used these horrible soft pastels, which I didn't have a clue how to handle. They pretty much ruined the whole drawing, but eventually I managed to save it with charcoal. Though it didn't turned out as planned, I'm glad I finished it.

Interesting blend of charcoal and pastel! I'm familiar with the original photo, and I think you captured the expression well.
