Here are some figure drawings that have different approaches to them with some mid-tone experimenting like the ones on top. I started with a Yellow to suggest the figure and then I would go over it with a dark blue and rubbed the two together to create a nice transition between the core shadow and the lights. In certain areas the yellow still shows through. I feel the top two were successful in my experimenting. I will be doing that same approach again to see how much more I can explore with it. I had a blast drawing these. Enjoy!
