Sorry it's been a few days since my last update. Various reasons, but now I'm back in business, constantly moving forward no matter what. I had this image stuck in my head yesterday and felt the need to put this down on paper. The use of minimal foreground and background was a conscious decision. I've been enjoying the use of color fields to fill in the space normally filled with minutiae. I've also further refined the way I hold a pencil, which has greatly added to my ability to create fluid gesture sketches to get better poses in a short time.
