If that's your level of work you sure don't need any advice or comment from me except well done. Terrific stuff.

I'm a charcoal artist myself and these are amazing! How do you get them to look so neat and clean? Mine always get so messy

Thanks !! And your works are great too !
About getting it clean, i kinda suck at explaining, but I'll try. It's gonna sound wierd but u actually use eyeshadow brushes (those big brushes used for blushes will also work. But I tape the fibres together leaving just about 3mm in the end just so there's some firmness) I use these brushes to take the charcoal powder off the compressed stick and smudge it onto the paper . I don't use the stick directly on the paper if I want the softness , and also, I never use my finger to smudge ( instead I use the same brush) so the gradient is smooth and not all patchy . Hope you got the idea..

(PS: kindly ignore the grammatical errors , if any :P English isn't my first language )
