    That's looking very good. It's a wonderful technique for portraits or life studies.

    Thank You, dear Felix.
    I didn't trace the reference neither I picked the colors or tones from it, so it looks similar enough, but it's not a mere pedantic, perfect copy, provided it could be obtained.
    Probably I should blur it a little bit and or increase its size to make the signs disappear and get a more perfectly polishd drawing texture ...
    Anyway this is an experiment to develop a good enough approach for going beyond sketches. It didn't take much time so far, but I want to go further on and I also wonder if adding a layer may improve the effect, like an intermediate fixing spray for pastels.

    Excellent drawing Caesar, I like the way you have painted the light on her shoulder.

    Thank You, dear Shechat!
    It looks like that mild nudes are acceptable at least as WIPs, but I guess that, when finished, only a censored copy would be possibly available on the main gallery ...

    Thank You, dear Saphire! I hope to be able to resume this soon. I found also another promising approach, but I really wish to take it to the most advanced and polishe stage I can with AR pencil and crayon.
