Stretching Myself

Hello All!

Wanted to share this quick sketch I did from a picture I found on the internet - trying to stretch myself and try new tecniques - this artist used a lot of cross hatching in his portrait, and it was basically two toned, not a lot of color.  So I thought I'd try my hand at it!
I like how it turned out ~ fun to try different styles now and again.

Hope you are all having a great week!
