My first attempt at charcoal resulted in this drawing:

It honestly looks much better in person--- I can't seem to capture the almost liquid mother-of-pearl effect on the widest part of the shell, as well as the high-contrast qualities with my camera. This nautilus was drawn using the following reference photo:

This took me one night to do. Some of my least favorite aspects: 
--- The curves of the inner chambers are asymmetrical. 
---The white lines defining the shell are imperfect (which could have been prevented if I had my Sakura electric eraser at the time. More on that later). 

Some of my favorite aspects:
The shading of the innermost chambers, especially near the top. 
The striations appearing on the widest part of the shell.
