One of the drawings from the previous post completed recently and probably the most time consuming of the three.

Time consuming because of a few things: the position of the figure (leading to a bit of a hassle in the composition), the desire to darken the background, the subtle variations in the tones, and the slight foreshortening of the head and facial features (in addition to the size of said features). I decided to not include the shadows projected on the surroundings from the legs, upper torso, and head because it did not seem to work well for the composition. I’ve included a couple of close up details and the image of the initial drawing.

In addition to the human female form, this has been a study in many components, some of which have been: lightness and darkness (and variations of each), flow and direction, volume, cross hatching, shading, subtleties, textures: existing (on paper surface -valleys and hills) and created (directions of lines and intensity), and of the transitions from gross to subtle.
