After getting tons of love for sketch #3 and coming to terms with my personal love for #1 (as well as issues I had with #3 not making as much sense below the waist), I tried consolidating what I felt were the stronger aspects of both into one drawing. I liked the tension in 3, as well as the attitude, but I felt that extended leg in 1 was super necessary (floating amputee lah??) and read better. So this happened, and I've been looking at it for so long I don't even know what I'm looking at anymore. TIME TO STEP BACK.
