Very nice!  I love the way the hatching and cross-hatching are used on this piece and also the balance of tones.  You've also avoided relying primarily on contour, which is so hard to do with ink.

Thanks!

Very true, especially since I LOVE using contour lines. Getting away from that was one of the objectives of this piece. I'm glad I succeeded. ^_^

This is awesome! I especially like that you hatched in some more of the subtle shapes of the skull. :)
