Rodin's 'Adam' - Study

This one is based on Auguste Rodin's 'Adam'. To many, considered one of the greatest sculptor's of all time. I left this one 'unfinished' to a degree where you can see my basic starting point of loosely drawing the figure up to light shading and final shading. It's a small piece, but one of those loosely based drawings that i enjoy having fun without getting too tight and technical. Freeform takes the edge and seriousness of completing a fully rendering drawing with all the artist rules intact. This is one of those that keeps me in artistic shape without committing to anything too serious. I used Canson Sketch paper which is partially smooth and has just enough tooth to soak up the graphite well.
