I finally got around to transfering the drawing onto my 5 x 7 piece of multimedia board. I decided to try toning my board first instead of a tonal painting or just blocking in the main shapes. The drawing was transfered using a softer grade of drawing pencil to insure the image would be visible. My main concern is the pencil smearing or lifting if I get water on it. I've decided to go in and outline the drawing with paint so I not only have a guide but that it seals in the pencil.
