I did this drawing to practice rendering more tightly with digital pencil, yet maintain a sketchy, hatched line. It took a long time to finesse the shading and I think a less polished style gets a similar look for much less work. But the point of technique experimentation is to find a mix of comfort zones and boundary pushing. I learned a lot with this one.

I'm quite happy with the final result, especially the character stylization and composition of dark and light shapes. I posted this drawing to my sketchbook gallery.

The rough sketch.
