I drew this from a statue ‘The Greek Slave’ by Hiram Powers. This is an exercise that I did in a series to practice light and shadows. This one is the first in a series of two drawings of this statue. There is something liberating about drawing from sculpture. The sculptor has already thought through the process of how to simplify complex organic shapes, so it takes the thinking out of the process and lets you just draw. This was all done in Photoshop using my Wacom Cintiq tablet.
