I've always admired people who can work with charcoal well.:)I love the shadework,the line style,the precision and all....it's very good considering the medium.:D On the other hand,I've never worked with charcoal so I hope my comment makes sense to you.:D

Thanks for your comments! :D I love charcoal! It's so much faster than graphite, and it allows for a lot more freedom and it just looks more expressive ^_^ You should try it out sometime! Just be prepared to get your hands a little dirty xD

Lol yeah that happens to me too xD
It is lots of fun! :D And if you screw up, you can always just start over because the drawings are so quick to begin with.

Nope! :D You can buy a pack of compressed charcoals for like 10 bucks I guess, and you break them into about 2cm pieces and they last quite long :D The vine charcoal might be a bit more expensive for the weight, but you only use those for outlining, usually. :)

Well,the main problem is that there are no art-charcoal-selling stores around here.:iconmiseryplz:
Oh well.:iconsighingplz:If I'm lucky maybe I'll find some just lying around...however unlikely.
