My enthusiasm for the drawing on the left is dying. The pose is so vertical that it’s really difficult to come up with an engaging composition. I had to force myself to work on it tonight, because I don’t want that drawing to drag behind the others.
On the other hand, I’m getting really excited about the drawing on the right. I worked on the digital sketches some more and came up with these two compositions below. The arms and the hand are definitely my favorite passage in this pose, so I tried to emphasize those areas throughout the composition.
