I have been working on this drawing for quite some time using a variety of tools. The drawing is done with graphite pencils and an Ebony carbon pencil for the extreme dark parts.

I like the carbon pencils but I am still searching for a pencil that is easy to blend, yet creates a deep black and flat tone without shine. This drawing is part of an eBook I am currently writing that shows step by step how to draw.
