Charcoal and Pencil: Mona Lisa by vt2000 Charcoal and Pencil: Mona Lisa by vt2000
you probably heard of her before, right?
and why she smile? ( you been wondering what does it meant by hidden mistaken)
So first at all,
Original? No way! Leonardo Da Vinci created this masterpiece first! so all credit go to him..
and I try to redraw this one using only two material I pictured above!
My first error I make is having to do with arrangement. As I have a closer look, I started to notice that there is a problem with placing the wrong position of pencil ( which is on my artwork):o (Eek) 
So ,this artwork taught me three valuable lessons:
Never place anything on top of your artwork unless it is part of the artwork.CURSE YOU! 
Never leave too many space at the bottom. CURSE YOU! 
and finally, I should have gave my artwork a little neatness as possibleStare 

Updated 7/28/2016: took a better photo and displacement of my art!

I actually like the open space at the bottom, since the left upper corner also has open space. It flows in good

A question, why did you use charcoal over pencil? :O

thanks so much! oh? 
I use charcoal pencil over pencil because it gave a nice black color  and pencil isn't black enough!

Ah, I always wonder my my pencil wasn't dark enough. Maybe I'll give it a try. :D Uh, any precautions I should take?

If you color them too dark and make any mistake, it will be hard to erase. my best option for you is will be B4 or B6. If you use B7, you will have a hard time erasing the mark!

I *think* the lead my pencil uses is 8B, if my memory serves me right.

ah! I see! they create a dark color! but they can't really produce a thin line easily.... you have to do it very light in order to do that!

Not bad :) Maybe you can put a separate clean sheet of paper at the bottom of your hand while drawing to keep it cleaner...Wink/Razz

Thank you! I see what you means, I like to experiment with placing in another position and somehow didn't realize that this position block part of my artwork (did this twice) but anyway the past is the past since I can't find my artwork ( my room is the mess), next time I will make sure that this won't happen on my next artwork again!
