Today's warmup sketch is based on the "Antikythera youth" statue that was found in the same shipwreck site as the Antikythera mechanism. On Fluid cold-press paper; pencil, ancient palette watercolours, no subligaculum.

I'm sure I'll find all sorts of things to nitpick about the drawing in the morning, as I always do :)

Not ashamed to say I laughed (cackled) loudly at this. I had just finished a Very Serious Conversation with someone, so there was some shocked staring. Still not ashamed.
