Hi
I was practising some figures, tonal values
I drew this freehand of carved figure picture from drawing academy site.
I know this isn't very much perfect!. any comments most welcome.

I happen to saw some competition out there and if won will get a full free 3 months drawing course  ;) , however that depends on how many max votes one gets.

I have submitted one picture for this competition

Hi Cyril, it looks like a good body form. And fun contest.  If you submit another, put in some darker tones like on main crease lines on breast, navel and don't forget the family jewels like Michelangelo's!  :blush:

Liz's comment made me realize I must have missed your posting.

Just checked it out.  Nice work, Cyril, even though you neutered him.

Good luck.

Funny I had a feeling there was something missing from this drawing.... Were you being polite, Cyril, or was the reference  emasculated as well? If you are worried about offending people (obviously not the PB ladies!), next time maybe you could give him a loin cloth?
