Nude Female Figure Study

I wanted to complete a more rendered sketch to practice lighting and tone, as it's been recommended to me that I should work on my tonal skills.  Critique is welcome!

  1. Your tones are exquisite.I stopped when I saw this image and its depth. Well done.

    I have photographed the nude many times and believe this to be a great work of art.

  2. Hi Steve, Thanks so much for your kind words :) I still have a ways to go before I master drawing the nude, but your comment is definitely encouraging! :)
