Another painting, this time of the fabled soldier from Ancient Greece. Really happy with how this turned out. Took about 4 hours or so

Male Anatomy 2

Another look at anatomy looking at shape and proportion. Also tone/ values were considered to make the image read well. Using the same model, semi naked guy with a gun. Don't read anything into that

Male Anatomy 1

Figure drawing practice. Took it further than I thought I would, drawing it up in comic-esque style. Not too happy with the foot but oh well. Blacks are also a bit uneven, especially down the LH side. One thing I have always struggled with it giving people mass/ make it look like they are actually standing which I am trying to correct. I am happy with this despite the unusual subject matter of a semi naked man with a gun.
