#1k36 Jeremy

Jeremy Renner caricature in charcoal. Second attempt. 12x18 inches newspriint. 

Ritmo charcoal is my new fav now. It's so soft, with grainy effect, I don't even have to use a stump to smudge it (a finger does the trick).  It gives me this painterly effect -easily! No problem on sharpening, it doesn't break easily. I use HB for lighter drawing and 3B for the kind of darks I want.   It works perfect with smooth newsprint  paper.  I used white compressed sticks for my highlights. You should try it.
