18x24 charcoal and carbon on Arches hot press 140 lb watercolor paper.
This was the midterm for my life drawing class, and my first actual charcoal drawing. I had never used charcoal as a drawing medium outside of some in class drawings, flatside sketches, gestures, etc, so I talked to a student who is really amazing at charcoal (and graphite, and well.. everything I've seen him do) for some technical and paper advice. I think it paid off, and I learned a lot. Also, I took the reference photos myself.
Note: I took this picture with my phone, and I think its an OK photo--But I need to put together a portfolio for my BFA application, and thus, there will be better photos, scans if I can get them, within the year.
