Hatching to crosshatching A simple and effective way to improve your crosshatching, and shading in general, is to first render the form or subject with only one layer of hatching. It doesn't have to be the entire subject, it can be done for just one part at a time. Doing this can really help your shading process and remove some of the fear of shading with ink. For instance, choosing the direction of the lines you shade with can sometimes be a bit overwhelming, so handling just one set or layer of lines at a time simplifies the shading process considerably. You are less likely to rush or over-render because you have some time to think about how you want to crosshatch with the initial layer. It gives you a sort of initial base layer of shading which you can use to decide how you want to move forward with the drawing. Like, where to deepen values, what forms to develop further, or how to refine details. It also provides some flexibility with an otherwise permanent medium. You can erase pencil marks, but once your ink work is laid down then that's it. So you can go light at first then bolster your confidence a bit to add more shading.

Conjoined forms A tricky part of rendering natural forms with pen and ink is in making conjoined forms appear to seamlessly fuse into each other. For example, think of how the nostrils merge with the tip of the nose. With pencil or charcoal even tone does much of the work and makes this relatively easy, but when rendering with lines we have a bit more to think about. A useful tip is to practice seeing the conjoined forms with no outlines and visualize the cross-contour lines of one form continuing seamlessly into the cross-contour lines of the other. Then it’s a matter of choosing the direction of the lines which best accentuate the volume and orientation of the forms. It will take some practice but you’ll appreciate the difference in your drawings.

Bare Essentials A simple plastic nib holder, $1.57; a tiny crowquill nib, $1.49; and a small bottle of ink, $4.15. Exquisite equipment and supplies are nice, but don’t get too caught up with that stuff. You don’t need much to learn, practice and just enjoy drawing. In fact, the bare essentials force you to focus on core principles and pushes your skills. With pencil shading, a simple HB pencil may limit your value range but it teaches you to simplify what you see and lets you appreciate the importance of controlling the pressure on the point. A basic painting palette limits your color choices, but helps you understand color theory and develops your color-mixing skills. Don’t ever think you always need to have the “right” tools to get going.

Skin stripes A time-tested drawing exercise is to render sheet with stripes as a way to practice seeing cross-contour lines as they move around the mounds and crevices of forms. We have to see the skin the same way. In fact we should render most subjects as though they are covered with a layer of striped skin. I usually imagine a flat sheet first then fold it and mold it into the form of the subject I’m drawing. It helps me to find trails that starts on one side of the subject then follow them as they wrap around, over, under, and between forms to the other side. This, for me, helps to hold everything together and harmonizes my strokes. It also helps to prevent over-rendering and seeing how one part of a subject relates to another.

No shortcuts Something I learned a long time ago about pen and ink drawing is that there is no going around the full process. It just has to be completed one single line at a time, and that’s it. All your steps are revealed and you just can’t cheat the process. But there are lessons to be learned along the way: you learn to slow down, you learn to plan your steps, and you learn to make every stroke count. And you have to learn to ignore time and just get lost in the process. If you think too much about “all the patience” it takes you will be tempted to either give up or just rush through it. Learn to find pleasure in the journey not the end result. That is where the true satisfaction is.

Thank you Words are not enough to express the show of support I have received so far from the art community. Thank you so very much for all the encouraging posts, messages, emails and overwhelmingly positive energy. Anyone who knows me well knows I am not one to crave spotlights or drama. I have shared art tips and tutorials on YouTube for almost 10 years and it’s the respect and appreciation of my viewers and subscribers that has kept me going. I appreciate you all so much. There are some things I suggest for us all to take from this: *You may not be able to protect an idea or concept, but you can protect YOUR tangible form of expression of it. *Copyright your work. Period. It is not expensive or difficult. If you can't afford it, just look up "poor man's copyright." * Do your best to document the process of development of your work—One of the reasons I always suggest keeping a “messbook.” * Do your research. It helps to hold ourselves accountable. Prevention is better than cure. * Undertstand that it’s easy for people to stand from the outside and say all manner of hurtful things. 1, they usually don’t know what’s really going on, and 2, they just can. As a good friend says, “let it roll off your back unto the floor behind you.” * Try to respect other artists and their work, no matter how simple it appears. We don’t know what it took to arrive at that result. * Dont be afraid to speak up.

Trance For me, a cool way to understand what it means to lose yourself in the process is to think of it like being in a trance. But you’re still some where between subconscious and deliberate. You are still very aware but much of what you’re doing is in sync with the flow. Like when an actor is “in character.” This is one of the reasons it’s important to practice tirelessly. You’re practicing, not only to get better, but to make more and more of your “drawing mechanisms” become so rote, you feel you can do it in your sleep.

No line is mute One of the challenges I enjoy about pen and ink drawing is that every stroke says something about the form it describes. When you render with tone or value you can sometimes dodge this dilemma, but lines afford no such escape. It’s either fight or flight.

A liberating restriction Pen and ink is restricting but yet very liberating. Although you practically can’t erase or cover up, and you have to use only lines to create everything, these very things also make it truly liberating. You free yourself from going backwards or worrying about mis-steps. What can you do about them, anyway? So just keep moving forward.

Fast or slow I’ve found that for me, if I keep a slow and steady pace it helps to freeze or block out time, and I just get lost in the process. Rushing fosters a shift in our mind-state. When we rush we tend to focus more on energy and immediacy and often compromise process and quality. Of course, there is a time and place for both, but if learning and practice is the focus, then slow and steady wins the race.

Choosing the right cross-hatch lines I am often asked how to choose the right direction for cross-hatch lines. Truthfully, there are no “right” lines to choose or use, and thats the fun part. It’s why you can draw the same thing 50 times and its rendered 50 different ways. There is an infinite combination of lines that can accentuate the volume of a form. My choice is generally based on the shape and orientation, the light and shadow, and of course just how aesthetically pleasing they are. And sometimes they are just purely experimental.

Positioning your light A common mishap when learning shading is using a subject that is poorly lit. Poor lighting doesn't only mean the light is dull or not bright enough, it could also mean it isn't positioned well. In this drawing the light was positioned so that it threw a blanket of shadow over the eyes. I was interested in the shape of the cast shadow and the challenge of defining the shadowed forms although beyond the reach of direct light. This wouldn't be good lighting if my intention was to sculpt the mass of the eyes with light and shadow. So think about the light source position and your intentions for the drawing when you setup the subject or choose reference images.
