It's a couple of weeks since I've drawn anything, so I was apprehensive I might have forgotten everything. But I did spend some time looking at reference photos and picking things I would like to draw, and I found this great photo on The Male Form's insta page, and I liked the simplicity of it, and it seemed like a good piece to draw from. 

Here's my sketch:

It's a bit sketchy, still, but on the whole I am pretty happy with it. I may come back and do another drawing from this reference photo, see if I can make it more polished before adding the colors.
