I got super excited about this pose immediately. The space and shadows were just amazing from every angle. It took me a while to decide on my composition because there were just so many great options. I ended up choosing this one because I really liked the slashing diagonal shadows and the many triangles in the limbs and the negative space. For this one I also decided to work a bit larger because I wanted to be able to take full advantage of this pose. I've been working 12x12, but this one is 14x14.
To start, I just blocked in in one flat tone for the light shapes and another for the darks.
