In-Progress Sketchbook Grid

Every so often, I post one of these “grid drawings” from my sketchbook, but I never seem to manage to post the original doodles that each panel is based upon.   I should have done so this time before I even started, but here’s one in-progress.  What I do with these things is to grid off a page, do a quick blind contour drawing or doodle in each panel in non-photo blue pencil, then use that doodle as the basis for a little character drawing.  I’ve used Photoshop here to turn the non-photo blue in the remaining squares to black so you can see the doodles better.  I’ll post the final page for comparison when I’m done.
