John Sheppard - 19 by crysothemis John Sheppard - 19 by crysothemis
Another attempt to practice with charcoal.

I tried willow charcoal for the first time and loved the feel of it, although it took awhile to get the hang of it.

I like how you describe it as an "attempt", cause I'm blown away. It's just awesome :)

Interesting to see him on another color of paper.
Changes the first impression of the pic, but I like it! *nod*

Willow charcoal is a charcoal made from individual sticks cut from willow trees. So you're basically drawing with what looks like a burnt twig rather than a charcoal pencil or compressed sticks or chunks.

Delicious! The eyes and hair are lovely! I'm with Curlyro, though, the nose is just a little off, still a good likeness! :clap:

Crazy! You can do this and you're just experimenting with the stuff! O_O I'm surprised you got the darkness you did with the willow charcoal. Everything looks a-okay... 'cept for his nose... looks just a bit off for John. :D

Thanks! I actually find that the mistakes I've made in graphite translate surprisingly well to other media. Or, er, well, something like that. ;)

Should've made it clear, it's not all willow charcoal, just the soft gray parts. The hair and black parts are done with compressed charcoal.
