I applied the same technique (shadowing, not drawing for hairy parts) in pen-and-ink drawing. Considering that ink is not forgiving at all, I had to be very, very careful from the beginning. Drawing guide lines very lightly with pencil was a huge help. It was more challenging in ink, however, the effect was much more dramatic with ink than with pencil.
