Nathan, You surely have your linework down and well all the rest also. Your dedication to LD shows, and the fact that you wpork in both dimentions is awsome. This sculpture is one of the best.

Thanks Michael. It will be a race to get the hands, feet and head/face finished on the sculpture but hopefully I'll get there.

Thanks Carol. I'm finding the sculpture is helping to inform the drawings.

Ron, thanks. I'm not sure of its exact size but I would estimate the sculpture is about 9" tall, 23cm.

What paper did you use for the pastels? I've never seen such dark paper, is it grey or blue?

Hi Kabutali, the paper is Mi-teintes "Lavender" which is a purple/blue colour.

I quite like it for figures as although it is blue it is quite a warm colour.
