I experimented here with drawing the figure in rust colored pencil on tan paper, and concentrating on painting the negative space with very little highlighting on the figure. I was pleased with the effect of giving solidity to the figure, yet hardly developing the solid mass of this male model.
This male model sports a beard and mustache and small ponytail. (That accounts for the irregularity of the way his chin looks here, and the reason for what seems to be a protruding lip in the picture above.) I did like my vantage point while drawing this, working from the side where his hip was elevated, with him basically facing the other side of the room, and with his upper body angled away from me. The strong spotlight emphasized his ribcage, hip, and upper thigh, creating good definition.
This drawing was done in my sketch pad with a charcoal pencil. Again here I used some light toned paint to create depth of space for the figure. It creates greater dimension for the simple sketch.
