    This picture is very alive. Just feeling the sun on his face and the slow wind in his hairs.

    Great work, Ale!

    Everything you said about this drawing I didn't do in purpose ;)

    Thanks Tannis, I confess that I've been loving doing this final project :)
    Posted Image Ale this is so very good. I love the hair, eyes and the highlighted sections are fantastic. I am pleased that the charcoal had taken a likingPosted Image to you.

    Fantastic work.

    HI Ale, wow, this is amazing! when I came onto Drawpj this morning I got the surprise of my life! Your skills with charcoal have moved to an entirely new level. You have really captured this drawing of yourself so incredibly well. I am thrilled that you were given alot of support from your friends here at Drawpj.com when you were really battling the charcoal exercises. I feel that your success has been a big team effort of love, encouragement and support, would you agree?

    And in turn you too have given others so much encouragement and support. This drawing is significant because it demonstrates the incredible power of this online community; together as team we can do this!

    What I can see here is that you were able to go into that artists mind, the wonderful place where we feel at peace and where nothing else in the world worries us. I admire you for this. The journey you have been on to get to this stage is incredible.

    Ale, to celebrate could you two very important things; please load up your before (pre-instruction drawing) as well as this one into the artists cafe under the topic that is already there in the 'before and after' and into the 'Cindy Wider's alumni forums' on drawspace. Ale, do you give me permission to use this image in my promotional material for Drawpj.com this is an outstanding self-portrait. what name to you give me permission to use alongside your work? Well done!This is the beginning of something big for you Ale. Do you realise now that if you choose, you can do portraits for other people and earn an income from doing this. If you can do this you can do many many others.
    Absolutely Stunning!!! Looks so lively and real. And the moustache looks almost real. Really captured my attention. Great work
