I'm always surprised by how often I run across something useful like this while looking for something completely different.  I was researching which sponges work well with charcoal and stumbled onto this nice pictorial drawing demo (he just happened to have sponges in another drawing). The approach in the demo bears some similarities to the "light touch" drawing approach I enjoy. Then the artist adds a little chalk/pastel for hot color and highlights at the end.
