    Here is my second attempt at plate 5. I realize that the reason my drawings look nothing like the original, and that I can't get them dark enough is because the original was probably done in charcoal.

    Hey bunrt-ice, you can get these dark values even with a 2h pencil. You need very thick paper for that and a lot of patience. But the way, or one of the ways, to do that is by making circular movements with your pencil. And don't put pressure. That way you should be able to get the dark tones you are aiming for.

    Here is a link (click) of one of my older works that has been done that way. Those dark tones are done with a 2h pencil. It just takes time.

    Third attempt at plate 5. This time in charcoal, I think it still needs a bit of work.
