Hey Ivan, nice work there. The good thing about what you are doing with sketching off an image like this is you are preping your eyes and hands for the work you will experience at the eyepiece. Learning what the media does, how to best exploit it, what works and doesn't. Your first session at the eyepiece will be less trumatic for this.

I like how your blacks are really black. Makes a real statement this way! How did you find using the charcoal? Quite a bit different from graphite, isn't it! I find it a beautiful, organic medium to use. And you don't need as much pressure applied to it to make a mark.
