Arm and triceps charcoal drawing study by Adam Miconi

Charcoal Studies on Newsprint

Just a few quick charcoal studies on newsprint. I cover a few various subjects and different techniques for the charcoal but it fulfills the point of charcoal studies on newsprint.

Arm Focus Crosshatch in Charcoal

Here I wanted to do a fairly quick study focusing on the triceps and forearm. This was done in my 8×10 sketchbook and It’s only about five to ten-minute study. I often do many of these studies in my sketchbook to try to better understand the anatomy with every study.

Bust Focus Charcoal Studies

This was a very interesting model and I’ve drawn him a few times now. He is a young model in his early twenties named Julius.

This was actually a full study but I focused most of my attention on the face, torso, and delts.

Neck Focus in Charcoal

This was a very quick study in which there were only about twenty minutes to draw the whole model so I got some proportions down that I was happy, I spent about ten minutes on that. After the first ten, I then spent the remainder of the time rendering the neck. The camera took the photo a bit light but I think the idea is still shown.
