 Day 23 featuring a thoughtful satyr/El Weidlerino. I took up Mike Creighton’s advice and tried cross contour hatching. 

 I wasn’t entirely happy with it so I went back in with a brush pen to push the contrast and because this was done on clayboard I was able to scratch back into it with a scraper and etching needle. Original under sketch was done with a Prismacolor Col-erase blue pencil which unfortunately caused a problem when I tried to rub it out - it also seemed to erase some of the ink.
