More conceptual figures

Week 3 of my "Figurative Concepts" class.  I think I'm finally starting to remember how to draw real people again.  We've been using charcoal pencils (I favor the 4B), but I just had to whip out the vine charcoal this week.  I like using it to quickly block in the figure and line of action, then rough in some tones before switching to the charcoal pencil to really dig into the form and details.  Kind of like sculpting, I am to understand.  I'm still too "heavy-handed" overall, but it's getting better.
