Initial hand sketch and scan. Then re-sketch and made some changes in AR. Did (paint tracing image to layer) and redid the head and neck area. I plan to do a new painting using this as the tracing image now. I have been using the paint tube with pallet knife ..pushing large amounts of paint around (almost sculpting) on previous work. I want to change my technique some. Put down less paint and use a harder edge knife and a dry brush.

Anyway here is the sketch .. enjoy
