Charcoal Figure Drawing Experiment

I’ve been having a lot of fun with charcoal drawing lately. This figure drawing experiment was done using a combination of techniques and applications like willow sticks and general’s pencils. I also played with the erasing techniques and brushes to get a variety in technique. Besides executing a realistic figure drawing, I also wanted to communicate the emotion I was feeling at the time and tell a story. What emotions or stories come to mind when you see this drawing?

The inspiration came from a photo by Ryan Loco of one of my favorite MMA fighters in the UFC, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.
