I did this drawing a week or two ago, and every since, every time I see it I'd want to color it in. I finally couldn't resist and colored it with my pastels. I didn't have any of the items set up for reference, so it was just sort of colored in by imagination. It was so fun, and I really liked the feel of the pastels on this type of paper, it is Canson Ingres paper. Scroll down the page a bit to see how it looked in black and white.

The next drawing I did of some left over items I had put aside as I tried to arrange a still life. I wound up liking the mix of items better than anything I arranged myself.
"Mannikin and Fruit" 9.5x12 inches on Ingres paper
Below is a charcoal drawing on 9x 12 in. Canson Pastel paper ( Mi Teintes) This mannikin is larger than the little one above... this mannikin is a foot tall :-)
