Back To The Drawing Boards

I have been in the mood to sketch lately, but more specifically sketch using charcoal. I usually do pencil drawings but I have always wanted to master charcoal but I am always to chicken and I resort back to pencils every time. So I figured I will never "master" it if I never try. I had to start somewhere so here is the result of my first attempt using charcoal. Dexter, of course. I'm not super pleased but once I started I realized that charcoal wasn't as scary as I once thought however it's not a friend of the eraser which means it's not exactly a friend of mistakes--something for me to get used to.

Oh, Jenny, this looks AMAZING! Honestly...it's fabulous! What did you think about charcoal? It really frightened me at first, but now I love it and dread when my homework is limited to graphite. Charcoal just has a certain texture and feeling to it that is super fun to play with...but I agree with you. Adjusting to the lack of an eraser can really throw you!

Love your creative heart and mind, here!! :)
