    Here are some progress pictures.

    Basically, I just sketched out the layout, getting the composition together. This is very rough and done entirely with white. No details here.

    A close up of my white sketch of the skulls.

    Then using black I went back in to work up the details and shading.

    Here's a close up of the focal part of the mural. Part of it has been done with the black. Most of it is still very rough.

    After I finish the black work, I will be going over the whole thing with another layer of white to re-establish the bright spots and increase my contrast.

    Lots of tiny work being done here with my Micron. Sorry about the glare in the photos. The lighting in my studio made the photos at the top of the mural really washed out. Anyway it looks better in person. I didn't want to move the panel.

    Thanks Greg. I'm glad that the composition part of it is together. Now I can really concentrate on the details.

    Thanks everybody. @Tocean to be honest, I tried using the frisket and masking and I work better freehand. I ended up peeling it off and just sketching with the micron. I can get away with it because this is a black and white composition. For some of the planning, I did use a Stabilo pencil, lightly sketched over it with the paint and then cleaned up the surface with mineral spirit. The Stabilo pencil will leave a trace if you don't clean it off. This works really well for me.
