Process (for Mark)
Here are an image that explains my process.
I do my gestures and lay-in and make sure my proportions are all good and ready. Then you can see where I start dividing the light from the shadows on his leg. I usually hit the core shadow outline pretty hard, make a distinct value difference between light and shadow, then I go over it with a towel. After that all I really need to do is erase out some highlights and make the core shadow darker. Generally keeping in mind that cast shadows I like to be hard and form shadows soft.
