3 materials drawing

Artist Statement-

I found a picture of a giraffe that I had taken when I went to Florida and made a grid to draw the image. Once I had finished the grid, I started by drawing an outline of the giraffe and some of the basic features. Next, I used ink to draw on the spots the the neck and face and then using charcoal I shaded around the face. Lastly, I drew the background using both charcoal, graphite, and an eraser to outline the grass. I think that I used the three materials in equal amounts to excentuate the focal point of the image. The purpose of this assignment was to display the elements of art such as, line, value, shape, etc to create an image that would both look identical to the original image, but also to have a better understanding about the elements of art.
