I drew this piece on black paper, sketching it out in graphite, and then I shaded it with the white charcoal. For the reference photo, I took it in a way that made the dimmer parts even darker so that there was more contrast.
Meet the Artist
I am 15 years old, turning 16 in about a month, and I live in Turkey. I am currently taking Spanish 1, US History, E3LS, Drawing & Composition, and Chemistry. One of my favorite things about art is being able to capture an image in a way that is realistic and yet also different from simply a photograph. I enjoy being able to recreate an image, either from real life or a photo. Creating a finished drawing is also just satisfying and neat.
