I believe the idea is to capture the attitude/basic posture of the subject, to the point where you no longer need the model and can fill the rest with your own mind. Someone can correct me on that probably. As mentioned before, I find doing them very relaxing.
I installed the painting program that came with my tablet today, and doodled around with it. It's actually kind of neat, I quite like the feeling of "painting," having the colours and textures as if you were working with oils. Anyways, I finished with this.
Only thing I don't like about it is that it is a pain to manoeuvre around your canvas. As far as I can tell, there are no shortcuts for zooming or moving horizontally, just up and down. You have to open a little window to do that.
