A Drawing A Day 1085

The Deposition, Part 5

Yesterday’s drawing seems to work well. Here, I am making a new version of the pose where the descent has already begun. The arms are being lowered, the head is more fallen suggesting a “letting go”. The legs are touching the ground, again relaxed and powerless (already suggested in the previous drawing), however the raised shoulders and the arms are offering some resistance to lifelessness, being in a hovering, suspended pose.
