The Animal is a mix between a Komodo Dragon and a War Horn used in ancient times.
With this project the technique of shading was the biggest part and challenge in the piece. The point of the Metamorphism was to create a mix of animal and object in a sense where it might actually exist. The way this was handled was by creating volume and form with shading the whole creature. The shading process included many different tones of graphite to ensure different planes of view. Also with the shading we needed to add atmospheric perspective incorporated by the shading. Overall the difficulty of this project was to learn how to better my shading technique. Overtime this became apparent that my skill was increasing when the creature actually started to come alive on the bristol board.
