Figure Sketch

figure sketching practice

This was about a 3 hour figure sketch, multiple sittings.  I chose this particular figure to draw because of its expressiveness.  The model legs spread apart,  a slight lean in the torso, and the right elbow resting on his right leg conveyed power, stability and boldness.  I wanted to capture all these intangibles in my drawing. I believe I accomplished what I set out to do, but of-course there are always room for improvements.  For example, the proportion and perspectives are slightly off.  The lights and shadows values are to close; I could have pushed the darks a little bit more to separate them more from the lights.  Well, now I know what to improve on for my next figure sketch.  Feedback is always appreciate, so let me know what you guys think.
