Rendering Harry Potter in Charcoal

We will start out with a complex charcoal example to show what can be done in charcoal and
then we will step back and show you in the next chapters how to build up your skills to be able to
accomplish great charcoal painings of your own. We are going to render Harry with Charcoal, so
prepare your materials: shaved charcoal of different grades (Soft, Medium and Hard), Charcoal
pencils and the brushes (Flat and round).

Transfer the image below to your Bristol pad (use 4H pencil or HB), just like we did before
when we were rendering with pencils. Just copy the important contour and map the shades,
including details.

1. Begin by shading the pupils and nostrils using your Soft Charcoal pencil.

- You may use your Templates for this, to have a perfect circle for the pupils.

- Also draw the dark line between the neck and the robe.

2. Using your Medium Charcoal pencil, shade the eyebrows with small short strokes (see the
guide below), and also shade the iris (again use your template), and glasses. Then begin shading
the hair at the back of the head and also draw the line between the lips.

3. Fill the front side of the head, the bangs, and the side with hair strands, using the same grade
of pencil (medium).

4. Draw a line for the eyelids.

5. Now shade the shadows around the eyes, nose, the areas between the nose and the mouth, lips
(the upper lips are much darker than the lower lips), and on the side of the face to the chin
(remember to leave some space for the reflected light). Use Medium shaved charcoal and apply
with a Flat brush.

6. Now use your Round Brush to dab lightly on the face with the same charcoal used to tone the
surface of the face.

7. Use cotton to blend the area, which will enhance and add a good texture to the face.

8. Add detail in the eyes: use your soft charcoal pencil for the upper lines of the eyes, hard
charcoal pencil for the eyelashes and some small lines for the muscles in the iris (you don’t need
to draw all of it just few lines). Next is to add a catch of light in both eyes using an electric

9. Moving on to the nose, finish the details by adding more shade including the Philtrum and

10. Shade the shadow on the neck with dabbing Medium charcoal shaved using your Round

- And blend the area with a flat brush.

11. Moving back to the hair, on the side add a layer of strokes with Soft charcoal pencil.

- Blend it with your Flat brush.

- Do the same to the other side.

- And don’t forget to also add hair on the forehead or bangs.

12. Add a thin shadow below the glasses, with Medium charcoal shavings and flat brush.
