Coffee Cup - Cross Hatching posted by JimBoZo in Pencil Drawing Course January 15, 2013, 06:13:10 AM 77525
 I wasn't too happy with this one. First, I tried drawing the cup freehand, but I just couldn't get the cup handle right. So I did a copy of the picture by tracing. Then I started with a 4B pencil (you can see the darker lines) and switched over to a 2B. Then I switched to a 2B 0.5mm mechanical pencil, which gave me better control on line width.

 This little guy was fun to do. Obviously, I included his stripped jersey, as I thought that it made him more interesting and more of a challenge. I also found that doing very much smaller lines for the cross hatching allowed greater control and a better detailed appearance. I kind of discovered that in doing the silverware cross hatching.
I find that by challenging myself to go beyond what is required has helped me to get substantially better. I have never drawn this well, even though I've drawn for quite a few years. This course is fantastic!! Thank you Nolan and Dennis for providing such a wonderful course.

I painted the everyday clouds on 300# paper and the paper didn't warp at all.
