Kalashnikov AK47 drawings

Kalashnivov AK47 drawings.

These are multiple drawings of an AK47 assault rifle, drawn using oil pastel on paper on cardboard.

The rifle was a tough object to warm to, likely due to it’s purpose, so I often felt separate from it while I was drawing.
The drawings were made viewing the rifle from various angles.
