Thank you i really don't mind, and will take a look, but just not today( i don't really have any mental capasity left for anymore comments today..)
But .. i really priciate it
Thanks Well.. i don't really know what to say... for blending - if i blend - i usually use a brush, but depending on what texture i want i also use leather, papertowels, printing-paper, tortillions... i just experiment to see what gets me the result i want... for matrials its always faber castells charcoalpencils - they are pressed and with oil - and vine charcoal.
I use a stylus from an old phone to indent highlights in like stray hair.
If you want some good tutorials on charcoal you should see distaindespair's deviant page... ( if you see my favorite folder there is a charcoal FAQ from her there - its really good)
Hope that gave some answers and if you have more spesific questions just ask more
