Kaspar finds the underwear drawer

John's caption for this one is "Hmmm... interesting."

Here's my fourth try:

This one was difficult but really interesting.

The main form is curving in a hunch, as Kaspar leans over to inspect the contents of the drawer. This expresses the curiosity inherent in the caption (Hmmm.... interesting). At the same time, there's a stretch upward in the head that indicates excitement or surprise. This pulling up opposes the overall curling over, creating an S-shaped curve between the head and body.

There's also some stretch on the back of the legs, countered by squash around the belly. Plus stretch of the mouth and cheek upward, which causes squash between the cheek and the ear.
