I really wasn’t sure what to say about this figure. It was androgynous, somewhat angry, evocative, abrasive, and purposfully ugly. I decided she didn’t need to identify herself and anything other than who she was: She is Herself, and because of that, she is fierce, inspiring, and beautiful!
Another realization regarding environmental conditions while using certain media, high humidity affects both paper and the fluidity of charcoals. While blending, the substrate paper was tearing. Very unexpected for a card-stock thick paper. Also, the charcoal didn’t stick as well to the surface. In retrospect, I could have added multiple layers of it, or used conte instead.
