Charcoal

Like the Chalk variants, the Charcoal brushes are very hard and rough. They are excellent for interacting with grain textures, in most cases you will need to reduce both the grain and the opacity settings.

The Sharp Charcoal Pencil seems to work almost like an airbrush in the way it lays down clumps of clone image.

A variant that is quite different is the Soft Vine Charcoal which shifts around the cloned image and blurs it out of register with the original.

The Soft Charcoal Pencil also does this but to a much lesser extent.

The Sharp Charcoal Pencil was used to create this picture. A large brush size was used for the early stages and then various smaller sizes to bring in more detail.

The Method was Cloning> Hard Grainy Cloning and Pacific Laid was the paper, which produced the distinctive horizontal streaks.

To complete the clone the paper was changed to Basic Paper, which helped to even out the texture.
