Thank you Helen. I found that the while the steps to get to the basic B&W rendering were quick and easy, the subsequent steps of hand drawing/erasing are where the secret sauce is. It took some time, but it was well spent I think! I am quite happy with the results overall.
You should be, Tom. Your sketch is terrific! I mostly skipped the extra steps but your results make me want to go back and try this again sometime.
