charcoal portrait drawing of a lady

I recently saw someonce use a quetip to smudge a charcoal drawing and wanted to give it a try myself. In the process I learned there is a big difference between hard and soft charcoal, particularly in its blendability. By the time this drawing was done my desk was covered in charcoal fingerprints.
