Arboreal Repose

My Wednesday evening art zoom has been on hiatus for a couple of months, while the host has been taking calculus or some higher mathematics course, possibly related to how Origami works. In the meantime, I find that I am not practicing enough, so today I decided to practice!

This drawing is based on a photo of the handsome model Gabi.

On the whole, I am pretty pleased with this, especially I like how I captured his posture, his cross-body twisting. Clearly, the leaves on the trees could use a lot of work haha.
