Plenty of variations of blue here (including the toned paper) and lots of reflecting light that blends throughout the drawing.

"Amanda" female nude with hands crossed


This blue toned paper is by Canson, I picked it up at the local Blick store having in mind future charcoal drawings, I can be very specific with the paper color picking as I think it can fit or be in line with the overall emotion of the drawing itself so I think everything should be considered even before starting a drawing.

Male nude portrait study


I tend to start these pastels lightly with vine charcoal first just to establish the placement and the 'bare bones' of the drawing, then I generalize the shapes and values at the same time, usually from large to small shapes, with color corrections throughout the process.

"Liliya" full frontal female portrait


Back to charcoal for the day, I always go back to this medium since I find it essential, also I went to the local Blick store today to try to find some really precise erasers for charcoal and all I found were some graphite ones, so all the erasure was done with a kneaded one, charcoals are vine, willow and compressed charcoal pencils, various shades.
