I will definitely do an oil painting of this but just had to try doing an iPad drawing to compare the result with the pencil sketch. I managed to create the effects I wanted with the hair but surprisingly I prefer the pencil sketch. Again it comes down to having more control when using a pencil. Also I can't get shading right with the apps. Nothing beats rubbing the paper with your fingers to get lovely tones.

I'm glad I've re-acquainted myself with the pencil and paper method of drawing. I still like the apps, but feel more comfortable using the traditional mediums.
