I do think the hands look a bit more sketchy and a bit mis-matched in the overall drawing, but the body looks absolutely gorgeus and elegant. Amazing work :clap: the whole pose is very classic indeed, the shading is quite gorgeus

Wow...this is beautiful... There's a very graceful movement to it, with her hands up and her hip cocked, almost as if she's dancing, and we're seeing just this one brief moment of it... Gorgeous light and shadow, gorgeous contrasts, and I'm so impressed that you're working here with charcoal; I've always found it to be dreadfully messy and difficult to work with. This and the additional torso piece are truly stunning nudes--beautiful!

Thank you so much for your appreciation :highfive: It is the piece in which I dedicated the most time and I must say that I was struggling a lot with the proportions in the beginning... Charcoal is not very difficult for me since I had course sessions where we were using it, and teachers were very good. One of my sessions was entirely dedicated to figure drawing.

This is lovely. The tones and shading is lovingly applied to the curves. The figure has a certain allure captured through your artistic point of view.
