Apparently it wasn't so much a question of "Crosshatching OR markers" as "What am I going to put where?" What can I say, I'm a little bit fickle sometimes. Here he is finished, at any rate, after an embarrassing delay. Tadah!

I haven't yet decided how I'm going to finish this. It will almost certainly involve crosshatching. It might also involve markers. Please forgive the lack of a cut -- he is so tiny that a thumbnail felt silly.
