Dry-Shading and New Sketch

Here's some updated images on what I've been working on.  The dry-shading never seems to stop on this white tara.  I'm learning much about subtlety and patience from the practice.  I'm currently doing the first layer of dry shading for the waves which gives them a basic outline/fade.  Next week I'll be giving them a second layer for more structure.

I've been practicing drawing skills on the eight auspicious symbols.  As much of the practice, it appeared to be easier than it actually turn out to be.  Took me about three attempts to get the endless knots proportions correct.  Now it's learning more about drapery but without the confines of a deity's body to lay upon.
