  • Deer Skull
    This is an assignment for my Master Program Scientific Illustration. 
    We had to choose an animal skull and draw it from this view. I picked one which was owned by my grandparents since the seventies and was given as a present to me (for this assignment) by my grandmother. 
  • First I made a simple line drawing to get the shape right (as you can see here it was a little bit too wide at first). 
  • Then I went on and made a rough light and shadow drawing. This comes in handy when you work (like me) mostly with natural light. If there is a day with difficult weather conditions you can alway look at this sketch to have an idea if you are going in the right direction with light and shadow. 
  • This is the finished illustration of a deer skull.
