Chinese drummer

I started this drawing on Sunday and finished it today. I did a slightly different method from usual - this time I printed a faint outline of the picture on the paper first so that I could get the proportions right. It felt a bit strange at first doing it this way - it felt a bit like cheating, and a bit like painting by numbers, with not as much creativity in the early stages. But I'm pleased with the finished effect, it was much easier to get the details of the face right this way, so I'll try doing some other drawings this way.
