I put my favorite piece first, of course! This was my class' capstone project, drapery! We worked in charcoal and white conté crayon for this piece, working from life (my professor took great care pinning sheets to the walls for us). 
This took 6-8 hours!

My final project! The only piece we did in color, my professor let us use colored conté crayons to do this still life. He wanted us to practice shiny things.
~14 hours.

My first official piece from this course. This still life was done entirely in graphite.
No idea how long this took. Upwards of 8-10 hours? I can't remember.

A fan favorite (aka my mom's favorite) the Scotland still life! Made using graphite and conté again, working from a photo.
Time: Awhile. 8 hours? I should've kept better track if I was gonna list them...

The beginning of wet media! Using only ink, I did a lot of rapid-fire drawings from photo references I got to pick myself (this is a rose finch!)
Time: 10-15 minutes.

More ink, this time done with a stick for the linework (I found a stick outside to use, because why not?), and a more traditional brush for the values.
Time: 20 minutes (including drying time)

Did this while waiting for the previous one to dry, mostly. Also done in ink with a stick and a brush. Lots of stylization going on here.

The only long-form project done in ink! My professor likes skulls. Used a brush, ink, and a pencil for the initial sketch. 
Time: 8 hours (ish?)

These are all the pieces (that I could find) that I made in my Basic Drawing class in Fall of 2021. Mediums listed with each piece.
Apologies for some poor photo quality, several of the pieces were warped or otherwise damaged during transport making smooth photos difficult.
