[Artwork] Sketches!

I recently purchased my very first Moleskine sketchbook. I tend to be pretty cheap as of late so my skin crawled a little at the $20 price tag of a 5" x 8" sketchbook, but I really love it now and don't know if I'll be going back to cheapo sketchbooks any time soon (though they do serve their purpose). With the warmer weather finally taking hold, I've been making it a point to go out into the city every day to draw. It's a blast!


Also, there's a challenge going on over at ArtOrder right now, and, being Lord of the Rings themed, I couldn't stand to miss it. Everyone is doing their own interpretations of the conflict between Eowyn and the Witch King of Angmar. As I've been really itching to do some pen and ink illustrations lately, I figured this would be the perfect subject matter for it. Below is my rough sketch for the composition. Will probably be tweaked a lot from here, but I'll continue to update as I move along.
