    "Eh, well.... I know how to look good...."

    Hey guys I`m a 14 year old guy that got real into drawing about 2-4 weeks ago. Yeah its not long time ago, but I love drawing wanna work with it when i get older. Anyway, I`m from sweden and thought that this would be good motivation, and I can see how I improve. I currently do drawings of real life photos, almost just faces, I got bad faces.


    EDIT: Im 16 now as you can tell, and I had to delete some pictures, had like 25 meg on the photobucket thingie. I am a deleted boy

    Profil,
    Before you go crosshatching, try the shapes concept (idea).
    Look at everything as a shape.
    For instance, a computer monitor is comprised of a giant cube and depending on the shape some circles in the back and on the bottom supports. A lightbulb is a circle with a rectangular stem for the screw. Build onto the shapes, then keep building.

    Crosshatching, I to am still getting the hang of it. It's a lot harder than it seems it would be. Start light (light as possible!) shading the same value in one direction, to make your values darker, do the same light value over the first one except in a different direction. The direction of the hatch depends on how you want the drawing to look, the curves, etc. Just practice. At 14, I wasn't doing that. I was out partying and skateboarding. Stick with it! You're solid.

    nice

    nice start for drawing for two weeks.

    try to get a book called "Drawing on the right side of the brain" by betty edwards. It will help you an incredible amount by teaching you how to see clearly.

    Learning how to see is most important. later comes techniques like cross hatching.

    practice drawing things in long, smooth lines, not short jagged ones. Once you can do that, you know your getting better.

    There really is no quick fix to cross hatching, just keep on practiceing.
    Cross hatching usualy consists of a bunch of paralell lines of 9-11 strokes called a set being overlaped by another set at a slight angle, a 90 degree angle, or anywhere in between. Just keep on working at it tryin different directions, sizes, angles, and even stroke direction (like drawing towards you or away from you).

    you will eventually find a set that feels comfortable. consistancy is key. don't make the sets too short... it usualy doesn't work too well.

    draw draw draw.
