I feel like this stuff shouldn't take as long as it does. Today, I'm going to try and get as much done on the figure as possible.

With some help with my photo reference I've taken a fairly loose transfer of the sketch and created my final drawing right on my watercolor paper. The photo reference turned out pretty good for this piece. It took awhile to get in the folds and creases of the fabric, but the refined drawing should serve as a good foundation to layer my paint over top of. It's not necessarily a follow up to "Goddess of Antiquity" but I think I liked that piece enough that it influenced the direction for this one a bit. I'm trying to be efficient with my use of the pencil. I don't want a fully rendered b/w drawing. I want just enough information with room to let the paint work for me as well. I've uploaded a larger image for anyone who'd like to zoom in for more details.

Kudos if you get the reference here. Here's a slightly refined sketch using my photo reference. I didn't add tons of detail. I just want to get the proportions right. This saves me time because I'm loosely transferring the sketch and will add the details of my finished drawing right on my watercolor paper.
