Begin the Race

This is from last Wednesday's life drawing session. Our athletic model was able to hold this pose for 20 minutes, without falling over. It's got a lot of interesting foreshortening problems to solve as well as hands and feet braced against the floor. She looked a lot like a sprinter "on the mark" before a race. This is the kind of unusual pose I enjoy drawing. Also I was doing more with line widths and shading, which gave me the more precise look I was hoping for. Only one drawing session is left in this series. The drawing is done in simple pencil on sketchbook paper.
