I've gotta admit, this drawing came out exactly as I had planned. I know myself and my drawing style well enough to appreciate the rarity of that occurrence.
It has been awhile since I've worked in charcoal, and it felt good to use it again. While I won't say that it's my favorite drawing medium (because it's not really), I should point out that just like any other material, it becomes much easier to control with continued practice.
