I'm going to pick up some different pencils and some pastels this evening. I do not draw a lot so the above takes some time. I really want to get a lot faster and hopefully I will have some things in here that are as substantial as the ball container study or better. As you can see I did a lesser sketch and then I did a longer study. I don't like posting without putting something here... I had done a short study of a picture of Samuel L Jackson as Mr. Arnold from Jurassic park but it's going to have to be in the next post. Thanks for looking and I hope all is well in your world.
I was hoping to use some chalk and make this much fuller and more detailed but the detail just gets lost so easily in the charcoal and I should have darkened the background or started with darker paper.
If anyone has any tips or links on working with charcoal I'd love to get them.
Thanks for looking.
