Heres a largemouth bass I did today with ink......
And the finish.....I think :think: ......
 
I did bare minimum of shading cause I wanted to look more basic, but now that its done I cant decide if I want to go back in add in more shading. :licklips:

Zac, you are doing so well with your ink.  In my humble opinion, I would do more shading in the bass but wait for the more experienced artists to comment.  Patricia

I agree, keep going, Zac.  It looks good so far.   O0

Zac, if you go back and look at the twig you can see how just that little bit of shading has given dimension/rounding to the twig. Apply that to your fish and you will see major differences. Doesn't have to be a lot, just one bit at a time to build on.  O0

Heres a vase I did with ink (took about 30-45 minutes).......
Step 1.  did a first draft
Step 2. transfer using some technique I saw Nolan using....cant remember what its called though....oops.
Step 3 refine first draft on Canson fan boy illustration paper...
Step 4 began shading left side using cross hatching..
Cross hatching up close, cause my camera couldnt focus in on all the diferent lines when I was far away...
Step 5 began shading right side using same cross hatching technique...
Step 6 Shaded top and added a cast shadow using cross hatching....
Step 7 added a cross-hatched background/////oops wrong button......there we go......
 

I really like cross hatching in case you couldnt tell, ;D  I used to not use crosshatching very often but I just love the way it looks with ink.

Zac, you are on a roll!  :clap: The shading you added after advice given, gives form and shape to the drawings.
Great step by step photo postings too! Keep onwards. Will you be adding any colours?

Zac, when I look at your work, I smile ... for it makes me happy to see you doing so well.  I liken your improvement to a rose bud which is opening into a beautiful flower. What a difference shading has made to your Large Mouth Bass.  You must carry on with the good work and learn as much as you can from everyone here, who gives so freely and unselfishly of their talents.  Patricia
