THIS can be a Bargue study - why not?!
So much easier/faster to make all the corrections on the tablet than on paper. At least it's a way to scale up to the real thing. Decided to take it farther - one thing I was doing wrong (and probably usually do) is making light areas too light - the contrasts too intense. Made loads of little tweaks to the shapes - mostly the outer edge of the figure. I see the edges of shadows need lots more work yet. Enlarged the image to something I can actually zoom in on now and do tight closeup work - plus that makes things so much easier - with such a tiny image (Photoshop tells me it was 2 inches high!) even a one pixel brush takes huge chunks.
