I did a search on google for “cross hatch” and found this site. I like the way his lines follow the soft forms of the females body. I am going to use the technique and see what result it gives when I start drawing nudes again after the summer break.
I have a mini fold-up cycle called a Strida that I wheel through the underground/subway each day. Its amazing how blind people are when they are talking to someone on the phone, I am aware that I can hurt commuters with my bike but are they aware that I just missed putting a tyre track up their leg!
This week the model was young and a lot more feminine than the previous nude model. Funny, but it was much harder to draw her, a leg or an arm that was too thick or fat was so noticeably wrong. I don’t know if I’m getting any better, but I feel I draw with more confidence, I just wish my technique was better. I plan to scan some of my cartoons, I’m developing a group of characters that hopefully will see the light of day soon.
I’m not writing very much on my blog, oh dear. I’m one of those visual types I guess. I like to write, honest but it seems I never have time to get my thoughts down on this little bloggy. The above site was created in Flash using AS3 script. Ok, gotta run…
