Light and Shadow: The Pullout Technique

Something a little different this week:

This technique is called the pullout technique. Essentially, you start by rubbing excess charcoal powder on your paper, getting it to about a medium value. After that, you take an eraser and essentially draw the highlighted parts of your figure, just paying attention to the primary light source. In the future, after you have done this, you then darken it in with charcoal where the shadows are. In the mean time, though, we're just sticking with the highlights.

I think I'm gonna stick to tracing :). That is a form of shading, right?
