Master Chief Charcoal Bust by hglucky13 Master Chief Charcoal Bust by hglucky13
Disclaimer: Comments of all kinds welcome! Please feel free to make suggestions, I don't bite! :)

I hadn't played with the toned gray paper I bought month ago until today. I actually threw together a simple sketch for a still life to photograph for a different class. I liked it so much, I decided to do a more complete piece of work. Master Chief (aka John, aka Spartan 117, etc.) is a character that I'm shocked I haven't got around to drawing yet. So, I took an hour to throw this together. I didn't focus too much on the tiny details since it was done on such a small scale (5.5 x 8.5").

Anyway, I'll be posting more of my assignments soon. Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Strathmore Toned Gray 80 lb paper (400 series, 5.5 x 8.5"), General's Peel and Sketch Charcoal pencils (hard and soft), General's Primo White Charcoal, Magic Rub Eraser
Time: Approximately 1 hour

Thank you very much! Drawing isn't everything, there are many other branches of art I'm sure you excel at. "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." -Pablo Picasso

You can do this with charcoal? And I thought 2H was good.
