Drawing II: Portraits

Well we're now up to drawing portraits of our classmates using value. This is going to take some practice. I'm not very satisfied with the results. They aren't bad but they're not good either. Tomorrow were suppose to try doing self portraits with this technique. I hope it works better this next time around. I picked up some watercolor paper for this project I'm hoping the larger tooth of the paper will hold the charcoal better.
