Developing an idea from a quick Manga sketch

This illustration idea kind of grew out of a quick sketch that I did in my journal the other night. I am really beginning to like the way that Manga allows you to quickly build a rough figure drawing; which you can then take back into Photoshop and build upon (if you look closely, you can see the lightly-drawn, Manga, wire-frame structure in this sketch). Utilizing the "seven and a half heads high" model allows for a really quick interpretation, and easy posing of the model. I wanted to post both the original rough and the finished drawing here, so that you can see where it started, and where I finally ended up going with the final piece. I'm pretty happy with it. Enjoy.
BTW, if you are in the field of comic art, or have a brother-in-law who is in the field, please feel free to contact me about doing some work. I am currently looking for work pencilling, inking, laying out pages, or illustrating covers. My turn around time is quick, and I'm available immediately.
