Our first model got sick so we have another model for our second long pose. Now I have 3 weeks for this pose, it will be interesting to see how I pull this drawing off.

I thought since time is rather limited for this drawing, I should be more efficient with my study drawings. Which meant I took one morning simply focusing on the proportions and gesture, and another morning trying out values on top of the outline drawing from the day before.
After having a good outline drawing of the pose, I started adding and using light/ shadow shapes to assist me correct drawing problems.
