I’ve been playing around with cross-hatching, I’m still not confident in my skills. And I know I still need to work out how to do it in a way that I like what I’m seeing on the page.
Over the last few days, I’ve been working on my drawing of Kevin in the grass again. I still need to figure out what to do with the sky, and I think my darks might be too dark. Apparently it’s high noon! Hahaha… anyway here’s what I’ve got so far… I just LOVE the ladybug in the foreground!
I made a gif of the iterations of this version of the drawing…
Speaking of iterations here’s the befores of this drawing:
I’m getting rather frustrated with this cross-hatching technique, so my husband suggested I practice on shapes… but since I get bored easily… I had to have Kevin help me. I decided to try a zentangle pattern that I like for the hatching and I think I like it better than what I’ve been doing…
I’ve had a massive migraine today, I waited too long to take some Excedrine so I ended up getting nauseous earlier. I’ve had a nap and some ramen, I’m feeling a bit better now, but the headache is still there so I’m gonna sign off early today. Hopefully, tomorrow I’ll feel better and can be more productive.
Stay safe everyone! And wash your hands! 🙂
Until next time…
