Drawing: Large Scale Charcoal Self Portrait

In Drawing class our last big project is creating a charcoal self portrait on large scale paper.  The time lapse video above shows some of the technique we'll be using.  We have photographs to work from and we're using the grid method to transfer the proportions of the image but the tone will be done using a variety of charcoal tools.  The final project is due Wednesday 1/21/2015 and will be the last grade of the class.  Below is an example of a charcoal portrait I created of MLB Baseball Hall of Fame player Hank Aaron (which he was nice enough to sign!)
