Drawing update and some photography

So this is what I have done so far. I'm not liking the texture in the arm so I think I need to work with that more. Overall though I think it's going well. I was having a tough time with just the outline of the arm but I think I have that figured out. I'm trying to get everything in proportion. So far I think it's working out. I did no work with that shadow in the face, which I just realized that I'm still unsure of.

I also decided to take a few more creative photos I think they turned out well on their own, but I don't think I'd like it for a reference photo just yet.
This one I just don't like as much as the next one but I think it is still neat, and you can see the texture int he arm I don't like really well here.This one though, I think is really neat. I've been trying to avoid running my arm through the main drawing but I'm still laying it down in the dust around it. I had charcoal up to my elbow. I also took another photo that I think may work within the bounds of my series idea (though so far I have two I really like). That one I'm not posting though because I don't like the background, I'd be able to change that in a drawing though. I had inspiration for the photo when I was checking my stomach for charcoal dust and discovered an interesting pose. I'm still not sure if I want to include it in my series (if it ever amounts to that), I'll just have to see where I go with the rest of the photos and work from there.
