"Its the real thing, Coke."
Earl R. Dean was the artist behind this piece. This particular drawing was the reason why the coke bottle was shaped like this. There is a contour line that surrounds the bottle itself. I can tell its a contour line because it shows a boundary in a three-dimensional form. The coke bottle is in the middle of the piece and its made from vertical lines, which shows the power and strength that it holds here. Also, there are horizontal lines from the stadium and on the home plate, which brings a calmness to the drawing. There is't any implied lines in this piece, because the viewer can determine what it is just by looking at it. There is a lot of value that is being used in this piece. Within the coke bottle there are areas like the bottom where its almost black and in the middle is more of a lighter brown. Lastly, at the top of this drawing the stadium looks like it's been done using stippling.
