yaya finally i can give out some helpful art tips! _easiest way to not smudge is to work away from your hand. Like start at the top of the page rather that the bottom. _ dont overuse it. Charcoal goes a long way and smudges alot. If your making a portait only make the outline dark becuase thats naturally dark and smugde the rest. _ learn from my mistake. dont make zigzag's or any weird design if you plan to smigde. just dont. - add detail's last - charcaol isnt the best thing to use for anime. not saying you cant but charcaol is intended for more realistic ish things - i personally dont like white charcoal because it make's everything look blue ish - dont waste money on smudgers. just use your fingers.
i use alot of charcoal its one of my fravorite art tools and i have been using it for about a year now. good luck <3
