Cricket progress drawing in charcoal

IMG_1258

This is a commission from a club cricketer.  Punching a ball back down the ground he’s holding his shot in a pose.  I draw my cricket drawings in charcoal because the looseness of the charcoal allows me to express movement really well.  I tried as an experiment to draw a cricket drawing in pencil but I found I could not create as much fluidity partly because I could not get the blacks black enough.
