Art Show: Anatomy

Male Study

This model was a competitive swimmer and dancer. The play of light across the model's back created an abstract sculpture that provided a fantastic focus. I drew in the shape of these shadows with compressed charcoal, over blending several times to provide mid-tones than extracted the lights with a chamois and added the sensuous line as a counter-point to the chiaroscuro.
