WIP - Old Masters technique (layer 1)

The first layer of a planned 7 layer technique.
This time, i will try very hard to stick to the plan.
This is the first layer of paint. The black and white underpainting.
It should define where the shadows and highlights fall.
It took me about a week and a half to get to a place where im satisfied.
I was constantly correcting and adjusting the tonal values.
But as they say, get the underlayers right and everything else will follow.
