Works in Progress!

I thought I'd go ahead and share a sketchpage I just compiled for an eventual digital painting I'm working on for my portfolio.. I'd love to know any thoughts or opinions on layout so it could be better composed for a portfolio.  Thanks!

..and thus began my toned paper binge

I love being able to use the toned paper as a base color, while being able to bring out darks and lights so well.. The canson paper I used had a bit of a tooth too, so it got a little texture to boot..
