good evening /ic/, this is my thread.
this time I'm doing a really simple drawing for a client. it's going to be on a poster for a monster-themed writing contest.
first up we have my sketch. they actually offered to pay me in full just for this (yeah. I know, right?), but I'd rather work on it for a little bit more and have something to stick in my portfolio for the future, so let's see if we can't make it dance a little...
this has to be done in about...five hours, so the clock is tickin' :)

Alright /ic/ I'm at a bit of a stand-still. Need some advice as to where to go from here, as well as a few questions answered.
Digital drawing, while extremely convenient, has been difficult for me. I've been drawing since February of this year and drawing full digital since April and have made great strides in my studies, but I feel that I could be progressing much more it I went back to a traditional media. I simply feel burnt out.
With traditional work, I have a much easier time laying down values and visualizing my work. I believe the convenience of zooming and undoing has worn down my patience which has greatly affected my finished studies that I've been doing in Photoshop.
I have pencils that I used for sketching and they are perfect, but I really want to get into conte crayons to spice things up.
Here are my questions:
1. Has anyone else had issues (mainly proportions and values) when making the switch from traditional mediums to full digital?
2. Are you all traditional, all digital, or a combination of both?
3. As a newbie going into conte crayons but also as someone who has used pastels, is there anything specific I need to know before going and buying a set, besides the fact that I will need tan paper?
Pic related. The last study that I did. Admittedly, nothing that I've drawn since this study, which was in mid-October, has been post-worthy. Even then, I feel this study could have been infinitely better if done it on paper. Mainly been digital doodles and attempts at new studies since I finished this.
Thank you in advance.
