Charcoal Drawing- "WATER"
A background that helps me with my textures practices, in this case i chose the water because i have never been able to draw it.

And take advantage of this as an advantage to draw the sea because it is not easy to draw a dough of water, so, the blur help me a lot and actually feel that it looks great.
As I did?
in advance i want to apologize for the quality of the photos, i was drawing at the beginning with the lamp on, i had not noticed the flash of my camera.
- Mechanical Pencil.
- HB, 5B, 8B Pencils.
- Moldable Eraser.
- Charcoal Pencil.
- A4 Opaline 300G.
I started making a drawing template with the HB pencil, very clear to not leave chews at the time of illustrating.
The first thing i wanted to illustrate was the dark parts of the sea, the shadows and reflections but i did not see the shape at the beginning, they seem like only a spot. Little by little it was taking shape.
With the brush and graphite powder i made some dark areas of the sea. I made them in this way to blur around the face.
I still saw patches without form and although I knew what I was doing I needed to illustrate the character before setting the stage.
I do not know if this only happens to me or to all the artists but i did not find comfort in this illustration.
The way i illustrated the face was with the charcoal pencil for dark areas such as eyebrows and eyelashes.
For the skin i make a light layer of graphite with the HB pencil, then over this beginning to shade and give volume.
I dedicated myself to illustrate the face, to give volume making shadows according to the position and the light.
Then with the pencil of Charcoal i made the hair, doing stroke by stroke to shape and with the moldable eraser i gave it shine, illuminating some areas but without doing something without sense.
I finished the face covering some areas of the hair that seemed to have a lot of shine. Once finished, i began to shape the water that surrounds the girl.
Using the charcoal pencil i made the darker reflections, with the pencil 5B and 8B some much clearer.
With the powder of graphite and the brush i made the reflections of the water out of focus and this thing did look much better now.
This is something that i do not know if i only do it, but i almost use the graphite powder and the brush more than pencils, i think this is my personal brand and my style, i use a lot of graphite powder.
After some adjustments, look at it from afar and finally make sense of what i was doing this is the final art:
