Thank you, DanaT and kymbo.
I am branching out into faces/hands - a friend is giving me, by instalments, the 1978 edition of the Fairburn system of visual references. It's amazing. Some of my other postings have got faces and/or hands, but I am working on a formula for Ebay that doesn't take TOO long, and I find the face and hair take me as long again as the body.
I can't always use the background within the figure - the backgrounds are rather a law unto themselves!
Thanks for commenting.
