Cast Drawing - Week 9

I spent another hour or so in class making slight refinements on the block in of Bacchus. Now I'm starting to block in the shadow areas. This step, the instructor says, is like the last rest stop before the thousand miles into the desert, i.e. a last chance to modify the shapes by looking at the shadow areas, BEFORE turning the form. After the form is turned, if mistakes exists, it means erasing large areas of layered graphite. Not a good thing for a drawing.
