That's cool! Too bad the hand got cropped, but I like it nonetheless.

yeah, it seems that no matter how meticulously i plan a drawring beforehand, somehow i always end up with some part of it running off the edge of the page. but the hand in the photo got cut off too, so i wasn't too concerned about it in this case. thanx for the comment.

Still rummaging through old threads...
I love poses like these because you can really study
tension and flexion in the human form. I study them all the time.
I still made some design decisions because as a study for the whole figure
I wasn't coming out with a drawing that looked like anything beyond the photo to me so... anyway...

That is just amazing! Is it wrong to say it has a Phil Hale feel to it?
Only thing is that the background is a little strong to the point that it is a distraction maybe.

Thanks much! I'm not going to take a comparison to Phil Hale
as anything but a compliment, although I didn't go into doing the thing
with him in mind. I think you might be right about the background,
but I might be stuck with it for now.
I'm posting a slight variation, although I might have to come up with a completely reconsidered background

Another Variation

Another variation.
Ironically, I think the background is perhaps even more distracting,
but the effect is closer to what I wanted in the first place...

My vote is the first one, but the tv screen snow idea is kind of cool.

You might try blurring the TV snow a bit, or maybe lower the opacity of it, or some combination of the two so it's not so harsh, and maybe blur the edges where the figure meets the background, so it doesn't look so much like an edge.

Otherwise, the rendering of the figure is fantastic and I like the general concept of figure with the background.

Thanks, putting an outline value that functions as blur between the TV snow and figure is a good idea and I'll experiment with that, but, I kid you not, for some reason when I put a background in that's softer in focus than the variations that are being used now, the image doesn't look like anything.
I know that's not the way we usually think of things, but her in less focus in front of a sharp artificial background seems to me the most interesting design right now.
