Quick Portrait

Well, here is a first attempt in a long time at drawing in charcoal. The last time I used charcoal on any of my drawings was back in high school when I took my first life drawing class. Personally I prefer not to use charcoal simply because it's too messy. For my figure drawings I stick with a regular pencil, mainly a 6B pencil will do. Anyway, this was done from a photo clipped out of a magazine. There was so much detail in the face that I needed to do some sort of drawing from it.
