Thanks, Kathy.  I darkened the sides of the second fish and it looks rounder now.

I did a test on a scrap of hemp paper and the results were as I suspected.  The hatching gets all blended together, so I am going to leave the drawing as is.

Thanks, Patricia and Sarlota.  The fish were a challenge.

I agree with Patricia everything is a challenge but thats what makes it interesting, too easy and one is likely to get bored  :) ...Your fish turned out great anyway, so the challenge was worth it.  O0

Nice job, Mea!  :clap: :clap: I agree with Kathy S. Lighten up the center, but keep the hatching close at the edge to give it depth. Also, make your hatch line follow the contours of the fish a little more. Sort of like a modified "J" or a loose "C". A lot of them look fairly straight.

Thanks, Win.  No progress without challenges, right!

OK, Steve, I see what you mean.  The water-soluable pencils were not really a good fit for the hemp paper or the topic.  I find the thickness of them too hard to control.

Yeah, I think  the water soluble pencils work best when you use them like watercolors. Also, how much tooth does the hemp paper have? I've found that hatch works best on smooth paper.
