Vikings Charcoal drawing.

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share my newest drawing πŸ˜‡, it's a charcoal drawing of Vikings tv series poster. I actually bought the charcoal pencils a year ago just to make this drawing. But was procrastinating it for some reason. now after finally completing it, I feel at peace :)

A link to the reference picture https://pin.it/1Ximk0g characters in the drawing are Bjorn Ironside (top), Ivar the Boneless (bottom), and king Harald fairhair (left), halfdon (right).

Time Taken: 4hrs
Material used: Charcoal pencils

Time taken is 5hrs which is quite less than what I usually take because apparently soft charcoal pencil cannot be erased well, so once a mark is made it'll stay there, also I had a habit of using sharp-pointed pencils but it was hard to keep charcoal pencil sharp-pointed. so this drawing is more of a sketching type drawing than a detailed realistic drawing. So look at it in that way.
Here are some progress photos:-

King Harald Fairhair, king of all Norway. you can see the how the right side got dirty even though I was keeping a paper beneath my hand. charcoals are hard to manage.

king Bjorn Ironside, the white beard was the hardest thing to get, I saw some videos on how to make white beard with an indenting tool but since I didn't have an indenting tool I used a nail cutter to indent but sadly I failed miserably in it.

What????? This blew me away. You are so talented my friend. You mean you did all these with charcoal? Pray tell, how long did it take you?

thank you sooo much for such a nice comment, I am so glad you liked it. yeah I made it with charcoal pencils, they are easier to handle than charcoal sticks or charcoal powder. only thing is you cannot erase appropriately in this so since I didn't used much eraser it took me around 4 hrs. otherwise, something like this would take me 12+ hrs with graphite pencils.

Wow! 4 hours seems like a very fast time to achieve this masterpiece. The downside about being difficult to erase means one needs to be extra careful not to make so many mistakes and oh about the white beards, you did great buddy.
