Fundamentals: A Hard Pose To Draw

Normally I would avoid a pose like this but not today.

This pose is very hard to draw and keep the proportions correct through the length of the arms and the legs. I was really struggling with this pose and it took me an hour and a half just to get this far. I was doing a lot of measurement and I think I got the end result close but I’m still unhappy with the results. I’ll keep working at the fundamentals though, and at some point poses like these should be easier.
