Skeleton Studies

In college I loved drawing, but since then I haven't made much time for it outside of basic concept sketching for my job. I decided to work a skeleton study to get back into things.

Honestly, I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to draw anymore after so many years away from it, but after a few studies my hands started to loosen up.

I thought this part of the process was really fun, because I could experiment without worrying about ruining my oringinal drawing. I did a lot of different versions - but these were my favorites:
