GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Summer Blows Away
Year Created: 2008
Medium: Pencil
Surface: Paper
Dimension: 7x10

MY COMMENTS:
This was done primarily in a a regular #2 pencil, cross-hatched and then all went over with colored pencil, which the scanner did not pick up very well

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I am aware that the face and hair are sloppy, but this is kinda a doodle... lol, but if anyone has any comments on how I can improve my crosshatching or anything else, I would really appreciate it.

This is very good. Perhaps a lighter hand with the shading would make a difference.

very nice! My only comment on the cross hatching is that if I use it I am careful to make it conform to the shape of the object. Meaning that I will use a straight line crosshatch for a square object, and a curved line crosshatch for a round object and so on. Generally I prefer to use the side of the pencil lead to create tonal values... you may well get a more detailed and directly applicable information in the drawing forum...

Thanks for the critiques! I know that the shading is pretty dark, but I originally wanted this to be done in pen, but I couldn't find a pen that that was nice enough to use, lol, but the point is, I kinda wanted it dark with thick lines and sort of 'suggested' color...

I have tried contour hatching before, but I guess I just don't have the paitience for it, so I do very random squiggly hatching. But you did inspire me to follow the shape on my next drawing, I feel like I may have improved my skills enough to be able to do that now :)
