Girl With Drapery in Ink by outsidelogic Girl With Drapery in Ink by outsidelogic
This is a bit of an experiment:  a ballpoint sketch on watercolor paper, and then shadows added with a thin black ink wash, and then lines darkened with brush and india ink, and then some highlights added digitally.  I feel like the digital part was sort of cheating, but I wanted to see what it would look like.  The original paper was too white to add highlights.  I think I need to get some tinted watercolor paper, if there is such a thing.

The pose was from my Andrew Loomis book, and I added the drapery.

I'm calling this "traditional mixed media"; not sure if that's correct.

This idea is wonderful...you could also experiment with different colors instead of black for your wash.  Just a thought...

Yeah, that would be getting really radical for me...using color...life is complex enough already :)

I see how you got the lines to "flow" and, indeed, it gives this figure a life and movement,
The props are a nice touch. It really needs that rectangle in the back doesn't it.
As far as digital enhancement, my view is that all's fair in art. 

So you used white paper? The gray is a photo effect? If so, I suggest you try gray paper. That's all I use now.
Have you considered pastel? It allows white highlights on gray but won't buckle the paper like water color sometimes does.
Regarding the line work, some parts of her right leg have sort of think lines. In my view it's OK if the edge disappears
here and there. The viewer's eye has a remarkable ability to complete lines that we know must be there.
Heck, as far as I'm concerned, you can use Photoshop to narrow-up a few lines if you want.
Don't get me wrong - it's a nice drawing! And I especially like that "flow" thing you have going.
