I love working with charcoal but still have a ways to go before I get to the level I am hoping to reach.

I love your "Christ in Charcoal", it's very nice. I can feel the sharpness of the thorns.  May I ask what paper you used and also did you use white charcoal?  Keep up the good work MLH!

Hi, I used Canson XL series paper & no white charcoal. Thank you for the compliment!

I love your drawing.  Very expressive.  I like how you have balanced the darks and the lights and created a great deal of tension with the contrast.
