    Glad you like it!
    @kedar: Well if I hadn't drawn this one I wouldn't be showing it in this section and say it's 'mine'...?
    @Kayty: I use sticks for the larger areas but mainly pencils. The 'messy' fun element is one thing but if there's charcoal everywhere you won't be able to present a CLEAN portrait to the person who commissioned you to do it! So I work VERY carefully and can't afford to be messy. I use 'hard' charcoal pencils for the fine detail and 'medium' and 'soft' ones for the rest. I've also got several brands as they are all different and some are better than others. Glad I could inspire you...have fun!

    Oh god they seem so much less forgiving than pastel, I use a hell of a lot of pastel and love it, but because it's all on coloured Canson I can get away with being a bit slack with keeping it smudge free. If I am working on a portrait on lighter paper, then I go all out to keep it clean, so sounds like I'll have to get fussier if I start playing with charcoal!
