    Beautiful work! After you've finished a charcoal drawing do you spray it with fixative? Thanks, Don

    Not knowing the shape steve is interpreting when he is doing his teaching videos is upsetting.

    Finally I see Steve interpretation of the model but never see what he is interpreting.
    So how can I learn from the Demos and lessons. As how the model should be interpreted on paper.

    Mr. Carpenter, I’ve been following you for a long time.

    I have a few questions that is so crucial for me; Is ability innate or learned by working?What do you suggest me to draw like you? As your strict follower, I want to know the answers of these questions because I’m not capable of drawing about something. Do you think that I can do this?

    Best regards from Turkey

    Great work Steve ☺ i also like how you got the contrast and hues, i like to see how many artists work that way i can determine what may work for me ! trial and error is not so big a problem with charcoal as it is so adaptable to change(s) thank you for your video looking forward to watching the rest of your work.
