I started this Sketch by taking a photographs I posed for. I think that's the only way you can get what you want if your trying to be specific. You can spend hours looking through stock photographs and spend even more time trying to create sketches from found images which sometimes work. But if you have a cell phone with a moderately good camera or SLR and someone to shoot a few images, you can pose for your own photos.
I try to get as much content as possible into the composition, once I start painting I can just focus on color and statement. I like to use a Number 2 pencil because it works, there is no special reason outside of the fact that it makes a very clean and defined mark. But almost any pencil will. I also like working with grids, there's something artistic and technical about it. It's one of those things that if you like to draw, you should know how to create a grid.
