ok...i have seen a few of my classmates do this hatching on their figures that looks hot, and im talking about with a pencil. I go to do it, and it looks like poo. Please please PLEASE help me, i can hatch ID stuff but i need to learn how to do this kinda of stuff. teach me! here is an example of one i just did cuz i need to show u just how bad it is. by the way, i understand how to shade with a pencil, and all that jazz but hatching @#)*$#.
thank u for the link and advice. It really helped me actually. My main problem was I was going to fast and becoming careless... Here is my latest, my scanner trashed this one but just imagine all the mid tones and u will see.
Thanks again for the help. I hear often that i should follow the muscles and forms with my hatching. I see many examples of it but i cannot seem to find a pattern of how it follows the form... Could anyone please explain this to me? show me how to follow the form? Maybe i am thinking too far into this, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
To follow the form with your hatching, you need to spot all the surface musculare and then follow it sideways. Get anatomy books, do muscle studies of the face, of any body parts that you believe you should do (i would do the whole body ) and then we you know them, you'll know how to follow the form with your hatching.
It will take some amount of time though, what i would also recommend after doing a couple studies is just to look at a flayed out drawing, and then to just try to redo it with hatching only, you'll have the example of the muscles in front of you, so it should make it easier. If you do a few like that, you'll get a quick hang of it, it will be a basic template your brain and your hand will remember and you can tweak it to fit anyone you want.
I saw the flowers die
grand beauty turn to dust
under wings of cold white death
