Previous sketch, I'd experimented with LAYERS...it felt like photoshop, almost. I'd tried to play with more colours. I'd tried to play with texture. THIS sketch, I wanted to play with shades...attempted to create more depth by using colours instead of my cross-hatching (what I'm use to).

Also, I wrote vertically...'straight up'. It felt funny, extremely. I felt I had more control over forming of letters when I didn't rotate the tablet...counter intuituve...as if it was paper. DRAW or DIE!

This is a very nice sketch! I'd be interested in seeing more of your works that experiment with shading. There is more to do than just throwing on some variance in tone - i'd recommend you look at a few references and really figure out where the body catches light and shadow, and WHY. :)
