MzzAzn's Charcoal Tutorial by MzzAzn MzzAzn's Charcoal Tutorial by MzzAzn
As I stated above, charcoal used to scare me to death (literally) - and then after working with it a bit, I've found out how awesome it actually is. This is just a little tutorial on how I created one of my assignments for class. I know it's not "OMG, it's so perfect and so freaking realistic" :giggle: - but it's nice to share tips with everyone. I hope it helps it you're interested in charcoal work.

I love it because you can get quite realistic with your drawings and create super expressive lines with them. It's easy to blend once you get the hang of it, and it's easy to correct mistakes with. I've only begun working with charcoal around three months ago, so bare with me! These are just things I've learned as I worked with it!

My other charcoal work from the past few months or so:

if you find an error and it bugs you, please note me about it. We shall blame any mistakes on my empty stomach and lack of 10hrs+ of sleep :XD:


:dalove: Thanks for the view & support everyone. It means the world! :glomp:

I have no chamois, so could I use model rocket tissue? (It's to ignite it)
