This week our homework was about tone and light source, as well as shading in a way that was not smudging. Mike gave us some really useful sources.
I’ve always kinda used cross-hatching in my drawings, but it was a struggle incorporating this onto a rounded surface without making it seem messy or pointy. The urge to smudge was real.
Here is my attempt at shading a ball with one of these techniques! (winnie had to share the light source.)
