Trying Some New Line & Shade Techniques

After a year plus a couple of months of being back into the illustration thing, I feel like I'm really just back into full swing. As of late, I've been trying to focus on different line and shade techniques. I've been mostly working with the Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen with the "F" (fine) tip, but am trying different approaches to line and shading. Today, I tried something inspired Tramp's illustration style used for images like the Holmes minotaur and the MM fire giant illustration. I think this turned out okay for a first stab at the style. But I got a ways to go to get mine as tight as DAT's.
