Liz,

I was not crazy about cross-hatching either, but my little bear came out good enough to use on note cards when I have to send gifts for newborns and little children.  Even the original was a gift to a baby as his first original art piece.  The family was thrilled.

I am glad you did it because it is one of the most important drawings of the course.
You have done a great job of it too :heeha: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Don't be scared of cross hatching, when you get that hang of it, it is actually a lot of fun O0

 :thankyou: NOLAN & MEA for your encouraging words!  I really have to motivate myself to do some of these drawings, and since I committed myself to the course, I hope to learn everything it has to offer!  :whistle: :sweat:   :coffee:   :fight: :yippee: and more!


Maryanne, of all the people on the forum you are the best example I know of.  You inspire us/me with your energy and enthusiasm and your productivity level.  It's also exciting how you share your art gift in so many ways, with so many people, even a baby is recipient of your art which he will grow up with!  :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

Actually I use audible.com to download books...and my library lets us download books. OR I can checkout books on cassette tape or cd.

Actually I had every intention to work slowly and carefully, but it appears that hatching kinda lets you 'scratch' all over the place!  It was certainly a different way to draw for me.  O.K.- sorta fun in a way. . .


Thanks Nolan for your encouragement to try hatching.  This was done hastily so if there are glaring mistakes, I will do it over again!

Thank you, NATALIE!  I don't do eBooks, but look at YouTube all the time.

Liz,

I love your cross-hatched bear.  Love the heart-shaped nose.

I love your bear Liz, it's spot on :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
that is the whole beauty of hatching, you get to draw fast and free. It works especially well when drawing outdoors as you don't have a heap of time to do shadings and things then O0

 :thankyou: NOLAN!  It's unbelievable that my bear came out the way he did!  It really was 'accidental'; I watched your video more than a few times to see if I could understand how to draw the lines to give form to Teddy.  I must say after that I stopped thinking about the technique and just went for it!  I will try to find other things to draw using hatching.


Now I am watching how to resize drawings. It's really interesting, but getting rid of the grid marks seems like a chore.

you do all your grid work on a spare piece of paper then use one of the transfer techniques to transfer the drawing to your final drawing paper. That way you don't care how many construction lines are on the spare paper O0

 :sweat: THANKS, NOLAN! Makes sense now. . . 


I thought it was a one step done deal.  :idiot2:  I read somewhere that somebody used the grid drawing then erased or painted over their grid lines.  That somebody could be me.  ::)

you can, but you never fully get rid of the grid, so doing it the way above just works out neater
