First 24 hours long pose drawing~! Learn a lot: trying to distill some thoughts for next time:
1. During the block in stage the legs appear right, and I did know they were probably too long, but didn't bother to change them. And man was I wrong: at finish stage what look flattering in block in made the model look gigantic, 8 head tall! Could have been such an easy fix early on.
2. After first 2 sessions, had time between class to really model the soft turning forms of the head. This alone took more than 3 hours after class, and is really the most successful part of the drawing. The other forms that should appear soft also, like the belly and the thighs, lack this in-between pass, which seems to give the rest of the drawing a hard feel, as if she's made of stone, not flesh.
3. Feet! Toes!! Have to get these things in my priority of get better at these list!
