The Son - charcoal

Classic Horror #7

After more than 30 years of charcoal I actually learned something new on this one - shading with a kneaded eraser. I don't mean selectively erasing; of course, that's the main function of a kneaded eraser. But, I found that I can lightly rub the eraser over areas of charcoal shading like that on the nose above and lighten the intensity of the charcoal without changing its texture nearly as much as would a tortillon, chamois or finger. Cool!
