Day 39: A charcoal horse sketch, in progress

horse charcoal sketch white on black irene park opus per diem

I started this sketch with high hopes — especially after obtaining the charcoal pencils for free — but it’s since been driving me absolutely batshit crazy. The biggest issues being

  1. I’ve never perfected the art of cross hatching,
  2. I stupidly used a non-charcoal pencil for the brown,
  3. → I can’t get anything to blend together effectively,
  4. → the white looks more like a weird skeleton costume than reflected light.

Bah. Gonna ditch this for a while. Maybe I’ll come back to it either with more shades of charcoal pencil, just black and white (or just white), or eff it, soft pastels.
