INKtober 2017- day 10 and 11. cross hatching trials!

I was pretty confident of my cross hatching (drawing with crossed lines) and strippling (shading with dots) skills earlier, right after Art college, but its been sooooo long now, that my drawing skills seem to have gotten rusty.
Its quite difficult to get the lines to follow the contours of the face/body etc., now.
I'm trying harder, more deliberately, and its nor coming naturally...
But then this is what my INKtober is all about... to relearn the old techniques and keep trying out something new.
So even though I am not really happy with my lines... they are too amateurish, I will hopefully get there. inshallah!
And so, here are my INKtober Day 10 and Day11.
A sketch of a prancing horse and a sassy smokin' babe.
Enjoy!!




Can you see the "minute" improvement in my cross hatching lines??
can you??? teensie bit?
From the horse to the badass girl??
Look closely...

  3. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
