    I have decided to have my first ever attempt to draw in pastels,
    I have never ever used pastels before so im still hoping to improve once i get the hang of them
    but my sister got me some pastels for christmas along with lots of other art stuff
    so i thought i would give it a shot and have to say it was sooo much better than using charcoal, the colours really help to show the character alot better

    So my first every pastel drawing of course had to be....


    can you tell what it is yet??
