This is a value drawing that i made from a picture my sister took some time back. the picture was a gray kitten sitting in a cement block with pink flowers and green leaves beneath it. this is the first time i have ever done a grid drawing as well as a value drawing. i found it became harder to shade because the kitten's coat color and cement were close to the same. I ended up making the cat slightly darker than the cement so you could see the difference. i learned that using a grid can really help you draw something because it breaks the picture down into little sections so you can work at it one piece at a time. I also found i very much enjoyed making a value drawing using a grid.
