2. Color-blocking and initial shading

The draw inside tool is very powerful.  As an alternative to working with in the layers panel, I find I can still select the seemingly unselectable shapes after draw-inside mode if I use command-Y to enter Outline mode.

1. Initial Concept Sketch

Personally, I prefer to scan my reference sketch in and lock it on a background layer, then use the pen tool to trace over the shapes.  I don't hold myselt to the sketch exactly, leaving room for the fluidity of the pen tool, but I usually like to keep true to my initial forms.
