I believe that if we linear-ly inclined artists stick with our natural inclinations, we might well hone our skills in that particular direction....but forcing ourselves to step outside our comfort zone is always a good thing. I recommend you try the idea of working WITHOUT ANY HARD LINES ANYWHERE AT ALL. Forget that your charcoal, or conte stick, has a pointed end. Work with the side only. See if you can bring your subject to life without the use of line at all. You may surprise yourself.
