Half-turned Figure Charcoal Drawing

I really like the pose in this figure charcoal drawing. The model is half-turned, which create a very dynamic feel for the drawing. The figure is grounded and well detailed, apart from the face. Overall, it's a solid drawing and can serve as a base for a more finished work.

Drawing of Sitting Female Figure
