Graphite pencil on paper
About this piece
This art class assignment was about learning to work with gradient shading. The instructions were to create borders throughout an imagine of our choosing, and reverse the gradient in each area.
I chose a stock photo of a soccer player about to rip a ball into a goal, 1) because I loved (and still love) soccer, and 2) because I loved the potential energy of the wound-up movement.
The number 18 was my player number all through club & high school :)
