Sometimes the body position defines the style of rendering. That is why this drawing came with triangles and diagonals because of the model’s triangular position. There was only light from the left and perhaps you guessed it by now: the same LED light and model from the Venus of The Hague series.
I liked doing a series of repetitive diagonals starting from the shin, calf, buttocks, up to the thigh, creating rhythym. The light on the left has completely blocked in by the midtones to the right and dark angular structures.
I kept the feet smaller than they appeared to be. Sometimes forshortening can cause strange visual effects and thus look implausible.
