Hi Katelyn!

This is very good!

How did You do it?
What is Mylar?
Did You start with a blank surface and added/subtracted charcoal layers?

Ciao from Italy,

Roberto.

thank you Roberto!

mylar is a type of vellum that is slightly transparent. i think it has another name in Europe - some of my friends have had a hard time finding it.

this drawing is mostly additive in process. just charcoal line, some smudging, and white charcoal.
