      Haha, thanks a lot, but this is actually graphite. I have worked with charcoal though. It's very messy and I don't know if use the charcoal sticks or pencils, but I prefer using pencils so I have more control and the work gets less messy. With the pencils, I build up tone and value much in the same way I use graphite pencils. I also keep a piece of paper under my drawing hand to avoid smudging. After the piece is done, I use fixative spray to keep the charcoal "sticking" on to the paper. The excess charcoal would wear off, but the spray keeps the heavy work in place and prevents smudging and the messiness. I hope this helps.

      If you do use charcoal sticks though, the same advice I've given applies. It's a bit like using pastels for me.
