Red chalk. Looks similar to my tinted charcoal drawings but it's easier to use, and looks better overall (imo).

Oh you just fishing for complements....:biggrin::vs_smirk:
I love your classic style. This is just wonderful. The shading is excellent. Just a quick question. Is this a finished piece or a work in progress?

This is a drawing of Rubens' 'Descent from the Cross'.

I'm not sure if I'll continue it. I just wanted to see how flesh looked with this pencil. As soon as I can afford models I can start painting and drawing my own things! Although I'm not confident at painting.

Not that you really need it because your already a pretty accomplished artist but maybe this will help until you can afford a model.

I have an idea already for a painting, actaully two paintings, (the same subject but contrasting). I have an idea of the position of the figure, although I can't draw it from my head accurately, and can't find the right pose online.

The good thing about a life model is that you can ask them to try slight variations.

Looks great, sketching in red chalk is nice, it seems to go on smoother.

I also like sketching with indigo blue prismacolor colored pencils.
