Continuing the large sketch
This time, working from a 5 min sketch from the previous post, I started with charcoal pencil drawing, staying in the 5-10min mentality, then rubbed a medium grey pastel over the entire page (no pic of that, dang-it). The Charcoal drawing worked as a ghosted image as I worked the contours, lite and shadow sides with Conte sticks.
Back and forth at the light and darks, smudge a bit, repeat.... STOPPPPP!
