  1. Your darks are wonderful in this piece. What surface are you using with the carbon pencil.
    Beautiful work!

  2. The surface is Arches 300lb hot press. The key to making darks dark, in carbon drawings is saturation. It's almost a reverse impasto. In oil paint you impasto to make elements more physically present by making them physically subjected to light. With drawing it's the opposite, the more you put on the darker and more subdued it will seem.
