I was attracted to this image because of its line of action. I printed it to copy at some point, and just studied it tonight.
The line of action was a little bit muddled. I attempted to exaggerate it by making his head a little lower, but I think that threw off the proportions a little (note the foot and... musketeer-poncho-thing). It also resulted in a less flowy pose. I want to grasp lines of action better, mine always seem to get lost.
I reduced his chin, and his eye makes no sense, really. I also ballooned out the top of his musketeer-poncho-thing.
I want to do more drawings tonight, and then after my optometrist's appointment tomorrow. I need to learn how to structure my days off, now, so that they are full of disciplined study.
