David Bowie as Jareth by choffman36 David Bowie as Jareth by choffman36
Been more productive lately though everything seems like a new medium to work with. White charcoal and Black charcoal on gray texture paper here. Just thought it was a cool ref pic and wanted to draw it. It scanned in really dark and I had to curve it up... but it still looks a bit rough the original looks better.
Also wanted to say thanks for the support on my last few submissions... trying some new things and have found a lot of support here.

This movie is what introduced me to David Bowie. I mean i knew some of the popular songs, but I didn't know he was the one who sang them, eh you know those kinda kid things. Anyway, this is one of my favorite films and wounder without it if I would have been introduced to this creative artist who I've come to respect. You did a fantastic job and glad to have come across your work.Chihaya Crying Icon

Looks great! You did a real good job with the light reflected through the orb, and I like how you accentuated the difference in his eyes a bit more too

This is absolutely fantastic. Delicious, one might even say. ;) I always find charcoal too gritty to do decent portraits with, but you captured every little nuance of Bowie's face expertly. I tip my hat to you, good sir.
