      yes, i’ve used some amount of smudging/blending technique too in this work… Charcoal gave me some trouble ‘coz i was working with it for the 1st time! 🙂

  13. it’s look so cute ………..i love u so much this drawing…………..try to much better

  14. Amazing work!!
    Can i know which charcoal and graphite pencils you use and also the
    drawing paper you use??

    • Thank you!!
      And towards your query: Are you asking about the ones I used in this sketch? If yes, I have used Apsara pencils B to 8B. Charcoal pencil was Camlin. Charcoal is quite messy to work with especially in the kind of paper used here- Ivory Card paper..i won’t recommend…
      If your query is is about the drawing material I presently use(esp. in my photorealistic works), they are Staedtler Mars Lumograph pencils and Fabriano Hot Press grade watercolour paper.
