It isn’t finished but it’s coming along.
And a big thank you to the lovely folks who offered useful advice to help me hone my craft. I basically just copied my photo (no tracing!!!), but I know that if I plan on drawing any more bodies, I will need to study anatomy and proportion.
For the moment, I am happy to work on bits and pieces. I am thinking of an ass drawing next… hmmm…. And hands. Perhaps hands and asses. Imagine the possibilities. I don’t think I am ready for that…🤣.
