Thank you for answering; however, fixative spray is what I used, and the charcoal still rubs off. I guess I was hoping there might be something to make it a little more permanent. Or maybe I didn't use enough of it. :?

With charcoal fixative in spray.

I have a technical question for you. How do you fix your charcoal drawings? I've done a little in charcoal and I love the fluidity, but then I don't like it to be so fragile after I am finished.

(Also, Blue Canvas looks like a good community, but I'm having a technical problem creating an account. Hopefully I'll get that resolved soon.)

Thank you so much.
You should join Blue Canvas because it is great community and it is very easy to navigate through it.
Regarding workshop I don't do them yet. I graduated in 2006 and I am still "too younge" to be teacher. I need more experience :)
I finished 12 trimesters programe at the academy.

Damir, I am so embarrassed. I think the first time I looked at your website, I didn't get past "Home". Now, after looking at it more thoroughly, I see you truly are a world-class artist, and here I am just a baby compared to you, offering you my congratulations. My only consolation is that of all the entries in this first competition I have ever entered in my life, yours stood out to me most. So if nothing else, I can comfort myself knowing that the amazing mastery and quality of your genius resonated with me, though I did not know you had already been recognized as a master by those much more knowledgeable than I. There is truly no comparison between the other entries and yours, especially when viewed in the context of your entire body of work. Please forgive my ignorance!

Oh my goodness I just looked at your work on the Blue Canvas website. Amazing. You are a true master. I have only just recently embarked on the path you are obviously well into...You mentioned starting a new career at age 36. How many years of study before you reached your present level of proficiency? Do you teach workshops? If not, you should!
