How many lines does it take to describe the human body?

Using pen and ink I created these four semi-blind (you try not to look at your paper too often while executing the drawing) contour drawings during a life drawing session.  I liked the challenge of using line (without the addition of hatching or shading) to evoke the model's voluptuous form... choosing four  different perspectives for this exercise in simplicity.
