Thanks, Nolan and Mea, for your compliments. They make me want to redouble my efforts.

Mea, you're right. I shouldn't be afraid to go to the dark side!

Now, on to hatching.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Steve, I would say you are a natural.  You are doing exceptionally well and like you, I was afraid of the darks and am still a little timid.  It takes a while to get into it but it will come. You can be proud of what you have accomplished thus far.

To me, hatching is a lot harder than it looks. This is my second attempt. It's better than my first, but I still need a lot more practice. One thing I picked up was to use lighter strokes. My first attempted had fewer tonal values. Also, I kept my pencil very sharp this time.

Talk to you soon.

P.S.  I just realized I should have done this as landscape. Oh, well.  :doh:

It looks like you have the technique sorted so I can't wait to see your teddy bear :heeha:

The secret to good hatching is a sharp pencil O0

Thanks all.

Nolan,  :thankyou: for the criticism. Its funny how some of these details can escape us till someone points them out.

Now, on to stumbling.  :painting:

yeah, that is why it is so important to stand back every now and again O0

PS - Luckily it is called sCumbling and not sTumbling - otherwise it wouldn't be much fun ;D

Hopefully l didn't stumble too much on my scumbling.  :)

I really need to lighten up when tracing outlines. The lines are showing through.

Everyone have a great day.
