Initial sketch. I'll most likely be losing the lines (most at least) as I render it. The idea for this sketch and how I was going to draw it came together, being inspired by this fine artists work http://kidchan.deviantart.com/ .
Main struggle has been finding a good hair style reference. Seen plenty of shots of crazy hair at bad angles, though, so I hope I've been able to put forth what skill I have to making it interesting. Just in case I have a backup style, more based on actual references. It's pretty much the same minus the draping hair rolls. I like those shapes, though. I feel they provide a nice upper buffer for the face, sort of bouncing the viewers eye back down as their view gravitates upward. But I'm not a hair stylist, so any suggestions would be great. I'm not 100% sure about the composition either.
