Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Plumb lines, charcoal, newsprint, and my core inspiration—my family!

What are you most proud of? It's been roughly eight years since stepped foot in a studio. I've been wanting to get back to my creative roots, so I thought I would start with the basics.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? In my first attempt, my mom's eyes are a little too high, but it's important to remember that drawing is a process.

Great job! remember to hold onto the individual shapes of the values. I like how you're handling the hair:)
