Being a very new to drawing I am hardly qualified to be giving instructions so I will just try to explain what I've done. As I've mentioned in the Intro, I sketched my grim reaper first with pen and paper.
With an HB pencil and an eraser nearby I started drawing the head and the drape of the hood.
Then I drew the hollow of the hood where his face would be.
I continued by drawing the shape of the robes and sleeve where the right arm (his right) will be.
