Both of these drawings were done by an artist named Nathan Boyd. This artist does multiple different pieces of art with a variety of elements and medias used but these two in particular were used with charcoal. The use of charcoal was a perfect choice with supporting both types of work because it gave the artist an opportunity to really show shadows and the lights in dark areas in both drawings. They are both realistic drawings the top one of Audrey Hepburn and the bottom of Marilyn Monroe. The artist really used charcoal to its fullest getting the darkest of color through Audrey's hair and the top portion of Marilyn's dress but also the lightest color through their skin tones and even Marilyn's teeth. Overall Nathan Boyd showed a great use of charcoal and both pieces are amazing.
