Getting The Lead Out

They came out sort of caricature-ish, not the kind of thing I'd usually come up with so it was quite interesting in that respect:Here are some more with a male model, creating shapes using the joint positioning and weight distribution as a springboard:

And some sketches from a recent Arnolfini exhibition to end on:
