I began to work up the shadowed curtain and the flesh of the foreground figure. The man in the foreground is entirely invented. I am feeling comfortable enough with my flesh-rendering that I think I can pull it off. The man in the background comes and goes. I think he is too big here.
A close up of the leg and foot. It still needs more solidity, but it's coming along.
Here is a better shot of the curtain. The background man is out! I will have to redo him at a better size. Sorry about the lamp glare. Here is how it stood at the end of Day 2. I began to sketch out the interior of the theater in green. Added a little bit of light and sheen to the stage.
