Here is a drawing done from real life. Its an approximately three day study (18 - 24 hours of work on it) with the small study on top to indicate the effect of light and shadow. I didn't do any background as the model stopped posing and it would take a lot more time. Perhaps I will try to do it at a later date. This is not a finished drawing by far, there is still a lot more work to do but I thought it would serve as an example of an atelier technique. No smudging technique was used, it's all straight up pencil hatching. Keep smiling!
