Bone Study

Wolf bones

Capturing tonality and shading in the bones was a fun part of this project, and most of my time was spent figuring out how I wanted shadows to be placed on the different bones and how they might interact with one another. The bones in the back, or the ones covered by others, are darkened as it shows the distance and also creates a sense of depth. The most challenging part for me was the angling of the rib cages, namely on the wolf to the right of the image. Below is the reference images I used mainly for this image.
