For our mid-term assignment, we were to complete a drawing of a subject of our choice, using all the techniques we had covered up to that point. It was particularly to focus on illustrating realistic form, mass, and volume. I chose to draw a picture of the young cat I acquired in September. It was quite a challenge to depict the organic shapes and forms, but it came out better than I expected. I think one of the most difficult things about this drawing was trying to indicate, in a black and white drawing, that he is an orange tabby and not a grey tabby. The result was that the drawing was much lighter than was optimal, and I had to adjust the brightness and contrast in Photoshop to get the shading to display properly.
