Nice work. Is this an inverted sketch or is it white on black?

I use a combination of supplies for adding the features.
White Conte' crayon on it's side for filling in the disk.
White Conte' softer pencil for the brightest areas of the proms or plage.
White watercolor pencils for the faintest areas of the proms.
Black charcoal for the darker shading around the filaments or plage.
Black wax pencil for the sunspots and darkest areas of the filaments.
To get started, I would just recommend the Artagain paper and the Conte' or watercolor pencils. I have a feeling you'd really like that over the white paper. :-)
