Doug, thanks a lot for that response!! it makes more sense now that you guys have written all that, I need to pay much more attention to my strokes and don't rush. I will try to follow your advice with simpler things first

I know this post was almost died and I have uploaded this on my SB as well, but just in case someone tries to look up hatching and finds this post from google, I would like to re-confirm what you guys said about hatching. I've been practising a lot and this is starting to get decent (I still need to improve a f*ck load, anyways). I know even tomorrow I'll feel these are crap
I have made some notes and uploaded them (please correct me if I am wrong). I hope it helps other beginners. If you read my notes you'll notice it's a summary of what Doug, Arshes Nei, Analoxe and the rest said. THANKS A LOT GUYS, I will keep up the training.

My crosshatching improved noticeably just by studying R. Crumb's work. A lot of it is controversial and disturbing, so I would suggest grabbing "the sweeter side of R. Crumb" as a starting point when learning how to crosshatch. Gradually work your way towards the shocking stuff later on if you like what you see initially.
