Tropical Darkness (details)

This drawing was really fun. It’s fairly large (50 in. x 38 in.) and I think the size helped.

Charcoal’s an interesting medium - you can work much more subtractively than in other media, but you still can’t work it forever without the piece starting to look gummy. I think I did a fairly good job of saving the whites in this one.
