In the image above you can see the model holding onto a sword behind his back. This gave a new challenge to draw, using observational analysis as much as possible to ensure the figure was of the correct proportion. If you observe the original image you can see how I have created lines and measurement points to help describe the features of the image clearer for myself to draw.
In this second drawing you can see how the model is standing in a rather standard pose, arms on his hips. A similar pose was also performed by the female model a few weeks back, which makes an interesting point to observe how due to being male the whole approach to depicting the subjects image drastically changes. Notice how I have applied the objects in the background to help give myself a further understanding of depth and scale.
