White Charcoal Portrait - Angelina Jolie - ThePortraitArt with Artist Xiaonan Sun

Unlike other portraits, this one is all about focusing on highlights instead of shadows, which makes most parts more challenging. Pretty fun and interesting to draw.. white charcoal doesn't stick to paper well so accidental smudging is more of a problem.

Tools used: white charcoal pencil, white compressed charcoal, my fingers for blending, kneaded eraser.
