I love the look of charcoal drawings, but I struggle giving up the control I have with graphite, and I stress about smearing it everywhere. Great job with yours, I need to be braver and just practice with it.
Terri, I know exactly what you mean! You can't get the same sharp point with charcoal and it does smear everywhere. I've seen some outrageously gorgeous charcoal pieces, but I don't expect I will work with it often enough to do outrageously gorgeous.
