Thank you Stephen!!! I haven't done any art for 30 years, and never used charcoal before. This is something I need to do... The boxers were done for New Saints boxing club in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire :)

Thanks!! Yes the boxers have impact, as they are all on A2 sized paper...I gave myself the challenge of doing 8 boxers, to get back into art after 25 years of not doing anything....!! :grin: :grin: :thumbup: :thumbup:

wow ! such a bug size ! I usually draw on A4 or A5, I feel lost with A3, so A2 is more than I could imagine :grin: it must be very difficult to get the right proportions with such a size ! :oO:

You are totally correct. I did the boxers with an A4 sized photo as reference. Every 15 mins or so, I would walk away to the other side of my garage, hold up the A4 photo, and look at the A2 drawing, then check the positons/proportions were correct. This medium charcoal, is very liberating on A2 or bigger paper, as the figures are life size, very imposing & emotional...!! Great!!! Love it!! :grin: :grin: :thumbup: :thumbup:

yes, charcoal is very hard to use for tiny details (that's what I like most in drawing, tiny details ^^) so it must be more efficient on big size but the proportions are another problem on the big size, amazing work ! it was worth the time you spent on it :magic: :whip:

Hi, I use willow charcoal, compressed charcoal sticks and for fine detail I use solid charcoal pencil, sanded to a point with sandpaper!! thanks for your kind comments again, much appreciated!!! :grin: :thumbup: :thumbup: :hi:
