Sketching on MLK Day

I began this sketch with a very detailed drawing first.  This is unusual, I usually just do an outline in pencil then move to the color pencil sketch.  I like the mad expression on the models face.  I think that the pencil sketch has a better expression than the color pencil sketch. 

Step 1.  The eye brows were important on this one, so I spent a lot of time in the early stages on them. 

Step 2. 

The necklace in the final color pencil sketch looks like metal links, but it began as a twine rope necklace.
