Me vs. Massimiliano Soldani

This is a drawing of a small part of a 16th century sculpture by Massimiliano Soldani called "Lamentations Over the Dead Christ." I did this in a couple of sessions, the last two of which were several months apart. The act of digging this one out and taking it back down to SAM is part of my ongoing effort to actually finish my drawings as opposed to starting in on an ambitious subject, getting a off to a decent start, and then leaving the thing 75% finished and languishing in a drawer or on a forgotten page of my sketchbook. I make no promises as to how long this effort may last.
