Artwork, Sketches/Drawings

A random Charcoal sketch

It’s been ages since I posted a new sketch that I did in my free time so here’s one :)

drop and heart 001

I saw a picture on Facebook I liked it and I decided I’ll try to replicate it but it was colorful and when it comes to art I’m a person who prefers Black & white over colors. I enjoy and I love playing with black and light more as I believe they brings out a beauty that colors don’t. Charcoal being my all time favorite medium helps me achieve that beauty. This drop isn’t as good as one of my previous sketch of a drop but I guess this isn’t that bad either.

Material used:

  • Compressed charcoal
  • Pencil charcoal
  • White Pastel stick & White pastel pencil (since I can’t find white charcoal here in Pakistan)
  • Blending stump
  • Tissue paper
  • Kneaded eraser plus normal eraser and Lyra pen eraser

P.S: I no longer have the original picture as my laptop’s hard drive crashed 2 months back so I lost everything that was on it. I tried to find the original picture on both on Google and Facebook, couldn’t find it so can’t share the original picture or provide a link to it.

      1. wow !! I am in love with your sketches …. From where did you learn all that ? Are you a student of arts or by yourself ? I love drawing and sketching but when I see the work of you guys I am scared I can’t ever do things like that ! You are the best ! Really amazing :)


      2. My Mom is really creative and is very good at art so i inherited it from her :) I am not a student of art but a graduate of Business administration :) I never took any special classes for sketching, learnt it on my own. And don’t be scared my dear. If i can do it so can you. Practice is what makes perfect. And you can do it. You can do great sketches and drawing just don’t think that you can’t as that is what makes a person weak. Keep practicing and you’ll be way better than i am :)
