I've always been fascinated by human forms, and that's the reason I'm into portraiture and figure drawing. This piece is inspired by Marcus Ranum's (a.k.a. `mjranum on dA) stunning photo. It reminds me so much of "Venus de Milo" hence the title of this piece. I hope my drawing did the model justice.

This is absolutely exquisite pencil work.

I especially love how you captured the delicate texture of the draped fabric and the overall beautifully soft lighting throughout.

Gosh this figure is pure perfection, as is the drapery! Nice blending also on the pencil marks btw!
