Live Lessons: Rhino with Graphite and White Charcoal
About This Lesson Series...
In this lesson series, we create a drawing of a wonderfully textured Rhinoceros on toned gray paper with graphite and white charcoal.
Lesson 1 (1:05:01)
In lesson one, we discuss combining graphite with white charcoal and some characteristics to be aware of. We also discuss reducing graphite shine and create the preliminary sketch.
Lesson 2 (1:08:12)
In lesson two, we begin adding tone and develop values and textures on the horn of the rhino. We carefully build up darker and lighter applications to create strong contrast.
Lesson 3 (1:17:13)
In lesson three, we work our way down the face and begin work developing the wrinkles.
Lesson 4 (1:11:42)
In lesson four, we continue working our way to the right side of the head, increasing the contrast as we go.
Lesson 5 (1:09:16)
In lesson five, we work our way over to the right side of the head and address the splotchy texture and pronounced ridges.
Lesson 6 (1:09:33)
In lesson six, we develop the values and textures on the ears.
Lesson 7 (1:14:16)
In lesson seven, we continue working our way to the right side of the picture plane, addressing some of the skin on the back of the body.
Lesson 8 (1:09:27)
In lesson eight, we develop the textures on the upper back of the rhinoceros.
Lesson 9 (1:16:35)
In lesson nine, we tackle the textures on the right side of the body and complete the drawing.
