here is a black and white charcoal pencil drawing i did in class. this particular day the instructor had us do the drawing using only hatching, no smudging. it was interesting because it forced us to learn the amount of pressure to put on the paper and apply the hatching along the structure of the face, which ended up giving the drawing this overall ashy look which i really like in b&w drawings. i still have trouble with deciding where to put stronger lines. like the form shadow under his cheekbone is a little too dark and distracting :/ practice makes perfect
