Normally I love to sketch faces.
And to stretch myself I'll switch up the media I'm working with. These are from my charcoal sketchpad. Charcoal was not a favorite when I did the sketch above, several months ago.
But as I made myself revisit it periodically, I became more open to it and find myself loving it now.
I have found it wonderful for doing a quick sketch and I am far more comfortable with it now.
