Drawing the full portrait of my class mate I learned how to control charcoal alittle better and not make a complete mess. Also that when drawing with charcoal when it comes to smaller details you have to take your time because of the shape it's not as easy as having the charcoal pencil with a small tip . When it comes to drawing I've gotten better with proportions & giving texture to fabrics . When I first started off drawing wrinkles in clothing & shading areas was difficult and took me a while to do. The charcoal helped make it easier to show the dark areas and it spreads easier than I pencil would making shading simple . Drawing the face with charcoal although was very hard and I kept messing up and is till feel like my face isn't weight but I tried . My piece is actually successful beside the face not looking exactly like the girl but my details and shading are decent and my proportions a. Little off because she's a little shorter in my drawing but this being my first time I did pretty good .
