not one of the "original" traditional pieces I'm planning on submitting soon, but I did this one in charcoal, graphite and pastels. If Instagram had longer videos I could do a whole drawing on there so you could see my process better. In this case I started with a light brown pastel pencil then worked over it with charcoal pencil and then worked over that with graphite for shading... and then worked over THAT with compressed charcoal and pastel.
it's an 18x24 inch drawing and in order to keep it somewhat neat (because I'm a leftie) I have to waste a lot of extra paper to lay under my left hand as I go.
sorry for the quality it is a camera-phone shot : D
