Charcoal is your friend

I've been playing around with charcoal lately, I'd never really used it much before. I'm using fat sticks so I can't get too tight with the details. I actually made the sticks in the fireplace after seeing a demo online...I'm always up for making stuff! Drawing with charcoal on cheap newsprint paper is fun and fast and messy and it's also closer to painting that drawing with a pencil point. These are all under 5 minute sketches.
