"African woman" female portrait charcoal drawing

6" x 9" charcoal on paper
Since I haven't drawn many ethnic portraits I decided to have my take on this, it's really interesting to see how the facial proportions are different with each race, plus in this case the dark tone of the paper that matches the skin tone really made it easier for me to get that middle value for free!, yes without even drawing it, sometimes you get lucky and your job gets less difficult, in rare cases of course.
