Title: Shadows
Medium: Ebony Pencil, Mechanical Pencil, and Charcoal Pencil 
Comments: Drawn from a photo reference from a hair add in a fashion magazine.  The girl's hair
in the actual add wasn't dark and wind swept like this though.  I added that in to make the
piece my own and to add interest.  I was learning to use extreme contrast in my artwork that
year in my Commercial Art Advertising and Design class.  "Make your darks the blackest black
and your lights the whitest white," my teacher hammered into
our sculls.  I think it really helped my art and gave it strength ^_^
