A Drawing A Day 1130

Added a few more details to the body, but, mostly worked on the background blending. I want to make the change of the body’s outline to be formed on the lower left by the background, then come forward as if emerging from the shadows from just below the knee all the way to the pelvis. Then I want the outline to merge back into the background again. Also did a bit more value fine tuning, after adding the background, as that has changed the relationships. One should kind of work on the whole drawing all the time, sort of keeping the unity. When I decided to stop and took the progress shot, I did not do enough work on her belly to keep it all unified. It sticks out, doesn’t belong. Some fixing to do tomorrow. ;–))
