Gerard Way by catdragongrl Gerard Way by catdragongrl
I'm not going to lie, this is probably my favorite peice of mine XD
I gave up my lunch for a week to join an art class that was doing these huge charcol portraits, so this took about 4 hours total. I really like working with charcol, and on a scale this big. (Its probably 3 ft tall!)
I had to take a crappy digital photo, and the paper is all wrinkled, so you'll have to trust me that it looks better irl.

: Haha so I just noticed my last two pics have been of him. I actually do draw other stuff, I promise XD

Wtf??!!

I thought you had edited a photo or something D= It's freakin' AMAZING. The shading is absolutely beautiful D=

What did you use? Surely not pencil?

Thank you! I used charcol, pencil would have taken FOREVER considering how huge it is.
