Faint figures

A self portrait, eyes shut, feeling my face and describing it.  Frankenstein meets Stewy from Family Guy possibly.

Last week Bob the skeleton went AWOL, this week, our life model!

Tone was the focus this week.  Starting with a line, then dark then mid tones.

Using the side of the charcoal to produce tone rather than a line.

My first challenge appeared to be covering the page in charcoal.  It exploded everywhere!  Second challenge, pulling highlights out using a putty rubber.

Light and dark of our mysterious hooded model.
