Friesian gelding - charcoal portrait

I thought I'd share one of my latest horse commissions. This is 'Nicky', a young Friesian gelding. He was drawn in charcoal (size A4). Hope you like him!

Ohh my god, your amazing do you only do commisioned work or do you do pencil drawings on request for free?

@jadeewood: I'm afraid I can't spend 20-30 hours on a portrait just 'for fun'... sorry. ;)

Beautiful! I love using charcoal but I can never get my whites looking actually white. Fantastic job

Thanks! You have to plan the portrait well and leave the whites white from the start. Not easy I know but the only way to do it (unless you want to 'cheat' with white pastel or paint but I don't think this is necessary). Works for me!

Absolutely stunning!! I admire anyone who can work like that in charcoal, I've given it a couple of goes with ok results, but it frustrated me too much so I went back to pastel and graphite.

What a shame! It is very similar to working with pastels. I love it and as far as contrast & realistic effect are concerned, I would always prefer charcoal to graphite. :)

You're tempting me to give charcoal another shot you know :S Do you use sticks or do you prefer the pencils? I have some of both around the place and used to find the sticks much more fun to play around with, your not drawing unless you're coated in charcoal/pastel :P
