Pencil illustration made on bristol paper (no tracing). This image was inspired by this beautiful picture found here: [link]
I loved the tenderness of the posture and the movement it suggests. The richness of the tones got somewhat lost in this picture, though gives quite a good idea of the actual piece on paper.
Part of why I felt so passionate about this piece was because I just visited the awesome exhibition called "Body Worlds" where you can see actual human bodies with their bones and muscles up close. It was very inspiring and right away I chose a theme that could convey my appreciation for the human figure and it's expressive attributes.
