Sleeping Boys

Continuing with my series of portraits of boys sleeping on wood floors, here's a guy named Long who was nice enough to curl up for the reference photo. This drawing (its about as tall as me) and the other one are not 100% complete yet, I will be experimentally adding color abstract elements. I want to not only take them further than just plain drawings, but also give them a color pop-- something flat and simple, not overpowering, and not super specific.
The idea with the drawings (and the elements that will be added) has to do with personal reflections and tender moments of violence (?).
