This piece is a mixture of a few different mediums. I used a little bit of LIGHT charcoal, 'Sketch & Wash' graphite pencils, water for the graphite pencils, a 2H pencil, and a 3B pencil. For smearing/blending I used both my hands and a blending tortillon. I was aiming for the front cover of a Three Days Grace album. However, this was my first piece with charcoal and 'Sketch & Wash' graphite pencils, so it's not the best. For example, the mother(the taller figure on the right) has an off-center head and one slanted, off balanced shoulder. Of course, practice makes perfect, right? So I'm working on perfecting my charcoal skills. Hope you like it, anyway! Please rate and comment!

lol Thank you! It was a little bit more difficult than I imagined it would be, because when I tested out the charcoal, it ended up being darker than I had anticipated, so instead of all charcoal like I originally planned, there's hardly any. Most of it is graphite and water. :) Thank you, again. :)
