Valkyrie from marvel comics.
Blue pencil rough cleaned up with black over it.
Digitally removed the blue lines, and shading added with Photoshop.
Trying to create more useable female pin-up samples.
Used to be unable to draw female characters at all, over time I got over that, and now do it all the time.
Only problem is I never really went for the hot girl sexy pin-up type stuff, which is expected in samples, so now I need to work on that a bit.
Also, I seem to have fallen in love with the digital shading over pencils format. I feel it takes a sketch to the next level with a minimal time investment.
I agree with your last paragraph/sentence, but I don’t think it replaces a well-inked and then shaded drawing at all. Are you planning on using the ‘digital shading over pencils’ technique for some of your samples?

I agree, this is not meant to.
This techinque will be used in samples for soliciting pin-up commisions, as an option.
It will not be used when I am trying to get work with a publisher.
