@Ben,

FYI, we’ve recently begun the practice of putting the same Reference images from the OFDWs on the 15 Minute Sketchathon thread.

Welcome aboard the OFDWs! Great to have you here…will definitely take a look at your piece when I’m not at work. :slight_smile:

You’re welcome, Andyonahill. My pleasure. I quite enjoy seeing the resulting works. I find it very rewarding.

I like where you’re going, Zarracin. It’s looking very nice. Although I don’t draw, I’m not surprised that the left leg would be challenging, basically coming straight out like it is. I’m a little surprised to hear that you especially liked the first photo, as I’ll admit that when I did them initially (about a year ago now), I nearly scrapped that one. Often interesting how that all turns out.

Great poses Ben! Cheers!!
