Black and White Animal

For this project we had to draw something in black and white. I decided to use charcoal to create an upside down hippo. I drew the hippo right side up at first using the toy animal, then I wanted to make it more playful so I flipped it upside down. I decided to put the hippo in a field of flowers.

I started with pencil and drew the outline of the hippo. Then I added black charcoal to create the shadows and white charcoal the emphasize the highlights. I drew this on tinted paper to give the drawing a more natural feel.
