So for my final project in drawing class, we're to duplicate a drawing done by an art master (Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, you know: any of the turtles) on an 18" x 24" paper using charcoal or graphite. I chose a sketch of an elephant by Rembrandt for mine.

Here's my study. It took me roughly 3 hours, with lots of coffee breaks.
Size: 18x24" or one and a half by two feet. It's huge.

Here's Rembrandt's original done in the year 1637.
Probably much smaller than mine.

So, it's a little off... but pretty damn good if you ask me.
