Charcoal Tutorial, WIP by variations Charcoal Tutorial, WIP by variations
OK! read this really quickly before clicking- (ok open in a new tab and read while you’re waiting for it to load, whatever)
This isn’t really a “how to draw a portrait in charcoal tutorial,” this is just how I drew this particular one. Just keep in mind that there are dozens of ways of creating a portrait. ;) Also sorry about most of the crappy photos =p
I just hope this is a bit helpful for some of you.
Finished: [link]
Reference can be found here:[link]

Super great artists who easily kick my ass at the portrait drawing thing:

ok, you know what? click here -->[link]

PS- If anyone actually cares to try my “method,” make sure to show me because I’d want to see it. =)

I sooooo love the effect of charcoal pen. It has a simple but beautiful effect.

This is an awesome tutorial but I have a question for you, I have such a tough time getting a really nice, sharp point on my charcoal pencils, any suggestions?
