Philip Seymour Hoffman in progression

Caricature in black and white charcoal in Borden&Riley Kraft Brown Pad.  I am not so much of a fan of white charcoal but I thought of using it as its effect on some other artist artwork looked pretty cool.  I am still trying to discover on how to really express light reflection by the use of white charcoal. 
I didn't do any sharp edges around the subject to keep the viewers focused on the face, especially on the high contrast on the reading glasses.
One of my fav actor, Philip Hoffman, always play an interesting character.
