I have been working on the hair and face and realized I needed to work on the feet and legs. I like to have the drawing develop as a whole and not let one part get too far ahead of another.
Above I am beginning to put the shadows around the feet and legs. I did not like the shadow under the closest foot. So I erased it.
Above that shadow on the close up foot is gone. Then I put in the shadows on the soles of the feet. The shadow cast by the hand is looking great! I like that part of the drawing.
Here is my studio with the drawing up on the desk so I could work on the feet and legs.
I worked in my figure sketchbooks recently. Three of the drawings are yoga poses and one is not. People ask why my models have short hair. The reason is that I find the physiology of the figure more interesting than hair.
