Over the last few days I’ve been refining my Bargue plate master copy drawing by cleaning up the contour lines, adding the sphere to show light direction, and darkening the shadow areas.
When I got to the step of adding the terminator lines to the drawing of the arm, I realized I accidentally skipped a whole section of lessons earlier in the course. Ooops. After completing the 3-step straight line block-ins from life, the lesson actually included a series of longer 4-step block-ins from life. That would be a good exercise for me to go back and practice once my master plate is complete.

Next step is to overlay vellum on the original plate to get a sense of the form.
