It's easy enough to create a sparse image (SD! will do it for you), but it's always better -- always -- to write directly to a drive if you can, for both TM and SD. It's less indirect, easier to recover from if something bad happens (a 'hit' to a file won't take down the whole drive, whereas a damaged image is often unrepairable), etc.

So, while it might be less flexible, I'd make a TM partition, a SD! partition and then a larger partition for your other use... and that large one is the one that'll grow when your Drobo gets additional capacity (since your base partition is the full virtual volume size).

Make sure to use GUID partitioning!
