Figure and Motion: Bone Study

Graphite on Bienfang, 18″ x 24″, 2016

For this bone study, I wanted to convey an anti-smoking message. The meaning comes through the muscle falling away from the bone of the hand and arm. I paid close attention to the shadows on the bones, carefully adding a gradient to every bone. For the muscle, I incorporated a sinewy texture and shaded to capture the soft roundness of muscle.
