Thank you all very much! It was fun to try something different (because I normally stick with graphite) and I think I will continue to throw in colored pieces every now and then. For now I am headed back to Graphite. I am doing a rough sketch and it's taken me a long time to get the proportions right. I am not even halfway done with it!! Once the sketching is complete though the shading usually goes pretty fast.
I call it "another day at the office"
What I have done so far - keep in mind the sketching portion is far from complete..
