I am new to charcoal and thought I'd post. I have been drawing for a while, but I just haven't done much charcoal work. I did my first charcoal a year ago and then recently made my second two pieces. Does anyone have any tips or pointers? I seem to have the most trouble with backgrounds...
Here's some of my latest charcoal work - charcoal seems to be very popular at the moment.
