Did this sketch for a weekly sketchgroup.
Before I did this drawing I did a couple of studies of a pose from a book, I then tried to draw that pose from memory and made it suit the character better. I mainly focussed on getting that 45 degree angle between the arm and the body.
And here are some studies from a book I bought more than 10 years ago I think...the cleanup lines done with the same 100% opaque standard brush. Trying to practice drawing with a steady-ish hand.
