This nude was done in about an hour's time. I really enjoy the challenge of drawing the reclining figure from a foreshortened perspective. It's harder than a straight on view of the model, but a lot more rewarding if it's done well. I try to draw an "envelop" of the whole figure and then break the large contour into smaller parts. I then refine those smaller parts until it looks more like a drawing of the model. I use the head as a unit of measurement for things like hands and legs (mainly to compare size). Feel free to comment or criticize.
