Semi-Nude Graphite Drawing, In progress

Below is the semi-nude graphite drawing I've been working on the past few days. It is drawn on 18" x 22" Fabriano soft press watercolor paper. I'm waiting on comments from the client so there could be more changes, such as a smoky, darker background and maybe more work on the drapery, waistline and hip. This is art so I hope this drawing is not offensive to anyone. I find it beautiful myself.

Looking very good, Ann. Are you working from a live model or a photo? The woman's right bicep looks a bit chunky, compared to the rest of her body which seems lithe/slender but maybe that's from the position of the arm? Let us know what the client thinks and where you're going from here - will this be in oils? Or just charcoal?

I'm working from a variety of photos. I think because the arm is coming forward a bit, the perspective causes it to look larger. This will remain a graphite drawing. I do have permission though from the client to use the photo for a painting. Will see if I ever get it done.
