Today was a short session of just one hour working on a monochrome start.

Work was very long today and I didn’t have much mental energy to go beyond an hour of drawing. But I’m happy to say that this drawing ended up being pretty accurate.

I did quite a bit of measuring, just trying to get the very basic shape of the figure correct. Lots of straight lines an forcing myself to simplify at this beginning stage.
