Unfortunately, after that initial sketch, if I ever try to draw a cleaner version on top of it...it never turns out the same. There's something about the initial energy in the first sketch that I love - and fail to capture in the second drawing. I'm still trying to work on capturing the balance of getting the energy of the initial sketch - and tying down the line. It's going to be a long lesson, I think.
