Maitea - Study 2 by ~AEnigm4 is a very traditional approach with a warm and disarming feel of a solitary figure. A candid expression diffusing into the margins. ( Featured by zeruch )

I ordered the parchment paper and the mi tienes paper from offline. Do you think I should do something simple like some fruit for my first time? I have charcoal pencils, conte sticks, and pastels now. w00t I don't even know what to do now.

Wow! It's so close to photo-realism, and yet has amazing qualities that cameras could never capture. 'Tis how it should be.

you prolly wont' read this, but the reason's I like this.
a) i'm pretty critical when people use photo references because they screw it up and copy a picture. you don't, you've made this your own expression.
b) I don't know if this is true, but you look like you know how to draw. Your not shading, your rendering, your describing the form.
peace out, nice stuff, keep it up, and go to life drawing (if you don't already)
