Bargue Plate 17

A man's flexed arm. This is my second attempt: the curves and angles took a while to get right, but the minimal shading was a nice change. After so many hours of staring at and comparing angles, I sometimes catch myself looking at random objects and calculating lines, curves and angles - so maybe an artist does come to see the world differently! This plate, both attempts considered, took 20 hours and I used the usual 2H and 2B with a touch of 4B.
