    It could probably help you out.

    You could also find an artist who does the kind of hatching you like and do a "study" of one of their pieces.
    This way you can figure out how they did things by trying to replicate what they did.

    Hope this helps,

    I assume ID=industrial design? Approach it the same way. Treat the figure as an assemblage of geometric forms, the way you would a bus or a pencil sharpener.

    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.
