Zebra

Zebra Head Zebra

I am inspired by animals; most especially African animals.

Last week in art class I created one of my favorite animals. A Zebra! This zebra was a lot of fun to draw and make it come to life. We started off by drawing the eye and then we used the eye to place other parts of the body. My favorite parts to draw were the hooves; I think the front hooves came out better than the back ones! I also really like how the eye turned out. I used colored pencil and white charcoal for the highlights on the stripes. I also used a bit of blue for shadow effect. Let me know what you think of my zebra!
