Cast Drawing - Refined Block-in

Progress on mr. cast drawing! This is the block-in stage worked up to near-completion, thinking abstractly and mapping out the drawing with light and dark shapes plus a few key landmarks. The goal here is total accuracy, so lots of careful observation and double checking of shapes going on. It's probably about 20 hours in right now, and will need another good 60 or 80 to get to full completion over the next couple months.

The next step will be to lay down flat tone filling in the shadow shapes with one value, then after that separating them in to two values and adding two halftone values to the light, and lastly will be refining the transitions between the values until it's a realistic representation. Lots of time will be spent picking out little dots of paper texture, haha.
