: First figure drawing in 10 years

Hello all, first time posting work here...I just got back into drawing recently after a 10 year hiatus and attended a figure drawing session the other night. I did a charcoal and a graphite, here is the graphite - I'll post the charcoal in the graphite section. I would love some honest feedback. It's obviously unfinished, I ran out of time.

That's awesome.

I like the shading.

After tens years of no work, its impressive.

Likes riding a bike sometimes.

Thanks...something I think I learned from this experience though is maybe graphite isn't the best medium for this sort of thing...I only had 40 minutes and it seems to take a good bit longer to really work up the values with graphite, I'm thinking charcoal may be best for these short figure drawing sessions I've started attending.

I love this. Why the ten year wait to get back to something you're so wonderful at doing?
And, what was the most difficult thing about getting back into it?
