Breath by DDzim Breath by DDzim
Charcoal on canvas, 39.4" x 55.1" (100 x 140 cm)

I started this a while ago (see some WIP images on my blog: [link]) but put it aside for some other projects.
To answer the usually most asked question: I think I worked on it 2 days in September and now completed it in 5 days, so that makes 7 days total.

Thanks for your attention! :)

This is absolutely astounding.  I find charcoal sometimes a difficult medium to work with, but you seem to be a master!  Amazing.

I've always loved your work, Dirk! Hope one day I'll get to this level - still 16, though, and rarely do I want to do full realism. You're one of my favorite artists, and I can't wait to see some more!

I'm so glad I came across your page. You are so talented! This work is just so stunning I need to comment - words can't describe how amazing this is. I love the range of tones you have achieved. Each and every strand of hair is perfectly placed and shaded. Also, the texture of the water and wet skin is just so... cool! This is the kind of art I will continue to look at and draw inspiration from. Great job!
