Additional details

I drew this during a figure drawing session which lasted 4 hours. The subject was male, and it was the first time I had drawn a male figure. I soon discovered and made mental notes throughout the process about the many differences between the features of males and females. Males typically have more stern, broad, and defined looks in their body, as they have more muscle and develop more defined bone structures and body and facial hair. I practiced how to make use of blank space and get rid of as much negative space as possible.
