Into the Abyss
Charcoal on smooth Bristol, 12x 15"
November 2010

"And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you" --Friedrich Nietzsche

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf" --George Orwell.
...I am rough men...

going for a darker tone with this, a moodier feel and a more painterly quality. I think it came out all right, but maybe more shadow?

Alex, it's great! I think the level of shading is perfect... not much darker you'll lose some of the spark that gives you the glint of 'the rough men'. Jaw, chin, ear and under hat... I'd keep it light-handed to add to what you have already.
