Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Willow stick charcoal, kneadable eraser, toothed paper. Playing with light and shadow. Purposefully amped up the contrast to practice noticing the direction of the light, and the way it hits the forms of the face.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep practicing.

Nice try. I think it would excel if you went back with a kneaded eraser or white chalk to accent the highlights.
