Medium: Cretacolor white pencil on A3 black cardboard.

This drawing is a personal favourite of mine for many reasons. I liked the change of shading techniques from black to white, especially with the object we were given. I’ve always been intrigued with skulls, whether it is human or animal. I embrace the darker side to their look and feel. It was a struggle to get the proportions of the skulls head to match each side due to the unevenness of the skull itself but in the end turned out well. The most successful part of this drawing I believe is the shading. I feel the white shading comes across as light hitting a dark object, and the black paper complements it, more than white paper with black shading would have.
