Figure Drawings

I made these in a figure drawing class in 2012. Graphite on paper.

The assignment I gave myself was to express as much as possible in the most elemental terms, using only the bare line and minimal shading. This type of exercise is a valuable lesson in economy of means; it helps me orient myself away from naturalistic clutter and towards an essentialized view.
