Charcoal on newsprint. I tried experimenting using big chunk of charcoal sticks, instead of the pencil, on these figures. One thing I learn is that it's not an easy task. To do shading, one has to have a feel of what surface of the stick is going to touch the paper, a corner edge or a flat surface, and to shade it very lightly that it is barely touching the paper, as he or she, would be careful on brushes.
