Form study continues...

The tiniest bump on the human body, even if its a mere cellulite, has a relevance to the entire design - or so it seems. The greater the level of detail, greater is the onus on the artist to link all of this to the whole, unless one wants a painting/drawing to look like a collection of discrete masses assembled into a 'dead', human-ish shape! The more I study, the more I realize how important it is to capture the whole, functionally and structurally, before indulging myself with the individual. Here is an acrylic monochrome study (save the background) with the preliminary drawing in charcoal given below...

And here is a more cursorily done form and texture study in color - I do not have a charcoal preliminary for this, since it was directly painted with acrylic, and I didn't stop to take pictures :/
