I find it funny that pencil and charcoal are so different despite being so similar. With pencil you are kinda free to make mistakes, so that helped a little when drawing this guy. With charcoal you have to watch very carefully where it goes on the material you're using. Comparing Charcoal Stan to this guy (random image on Google), you can really see how they differ in terms of how you use them. Btw I drew this about a week before I drew Stan.

Do people just not like this challenge? Would've thought there would be more submissions. Oh well, here's mine. I didn't do anything too special like colors or intricate details, but still proud of the outcome.

Let's see what the community wants. We were planning on keeping this category clean with only official challenges, but if there is enough interest in allowing user created challenges, I'm ok with it. I can just pin the official ones to the top. Let's VOTE.. Reply to this comment with your thought!

There are many things I need to work on, so having more challenges would be great practice. (and fun!)

Hi, Caleb! You need to focus more on overall forms. It looks like you are drawing what you think a face looks like and not drawing what you actually see. Look for shadow shapes and try drawing those shapes. Keep practicing... you have a very good start!!

Thanks for the advice James, I'll try to focus more on the forms next time.

Yeeah, not too great with charcoal yet and the values are really... something. Looking at this again I realize the shape is also just weird. The charcoal looks gritty and any texture attempts look smeared. I am not currently taking any classes (I don't have the time for them atm) so please excuse the scuffed image before you. Any feedback to fix these issues would be a great help.
