Charcoal portrait

I usually don’t grid my drawings, but I wanted this to be very accurate. I might end up doing it more because it saves a lot of time and erasing and I get the exact size I want. I am used to working with chalk on smooth paper so this was a little bit of a challenge and at step 3, I was having a hard time blending, but I figured it out in the end.
