That pose of the model was different and interesting to me and loved the slight tilt of the head. Charcoal on paper, 59,4×42 cm.

Love this! It’s beautifully done. I’m a complete beginner, so I can’t afford to give accurate critique of your work, but I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Thank you for posting. Just started following you on Instagram. Love the Dalai Lama portrait!
The figure is beautiful and very well done. You might want to consider softening the edges of the cast shadow and fading it out a bit. It distracts from your beautiful figure, being such a high contrast, hard edged area. The Figure is beautiful.
Thanks for the feedback!
It’s true that the cast shadow might/should be with less sharp edges, to get less attention. The cast shadow on reference photo was with sharp edges, though. But that’s the task of the artist to guide the viewers eye on drawing/painting, I have to keep that always in mind (:
Great job Timo, the hard edge at her back is amazing plus the composition works pretty well pointing to that direction, i would say that the muscle that connects the collar bone to the neck feels like a wrap clothe rather that a muscle.
