Blood and Bones!

We looked at reproductions of vintage anatomical drawings to inspire these gruesome masterpieces. Careful observation was encouraged to retain realistic accuracy in the anatomical structure of the bones and organs. Some students used reference images of other gruesome props, like poison bottles, candles, bats and daggers! We created a range of value, (dark and light tones) on our drawings with Ebony pencil and watercolor, and had the option of using chalk pastel for subtle color effects. A wire “frame” and blood splatters were the finishing touches!
