Progress Shot 13
Ok, so here I have added her (her view) right forearm to be included in the unity of one body. But also, I did another pass at establishing the values, the darkest darks and lightest lights. Also done a bit more work on her face. Now the fine tuning may begin. This is the stage where seemingly nothing much changes in the drawing from one stage to the next, yet, the small changes make all the difference.
Essentially the last 20% of the drawing takes 80% of the time.
