I've mentioned this before, but it's a sketching tip worth repeating. Try using mid grey paper to sketch with, because you can then acheive a lot with a white (crayon, pastel, or oil pastel), dark grey and black. This is what I did here but in this instance I had previously painted several pages of my moleskine notebook with mid grey acrylic. So simple, so quick.
