Hello this is Andrew.
Atm I am doing with my study group a 100 portrait challenge, where we draw the same portrait.
Main goal is to improve with portrait drawings and trying some new drawing technique and medium. Atm I started Steve Huston his lesson, but took a break for Ilya his Russian Drawing Course.

Keep it up, Andrew! I think that’s a great start for cross-hatching.July 15, 2020 at 12:49 am #629718
@lmartinezusmc – Thanks a lot. Might need to try other shading technique too. But cross hatching is fun.
Here my drawing for the 2nd day.July 16, 2020 at 12:27 pm #631871July 17, 2020 at 12:12 pm #633402July 18, 2020 at 5:02 am #634330erikdennesParticipant
You can look at Rembrandt’s portrait etchings for cross hatching. He is just so killer! and Jean Baptist Greuze. Check them out. Good luck!!July 18, 2020 at 7:13 am #634419ErinParticipantNo badges. No points.
You could have a look at Albrecht Dürer’s drawings and etchings as well – he used lots of hatching/cross-hatching. Good luck with the challenge!

Day 5 – First time using charcoal. I might try out different mediums. Kinda interesting how it works and how well it smudges. Thanks my left hand.
@Erikdennes – Thanks I will check them out. Looks like Jean Bapist Greuze has some amazing clean hatching. I might try to copy some of his works. The sketch style from Rembrand looks nice and simple.
@Erin – His animal studies looks nice. It will be a good reference for the future. Thanks also.July 20, 2020 at 5:15 am #636842July 21, 2020 at 11:52 am #638412July 22, 2020 at 11:12 am #639728July 24, 2020 at 10:23 am #641787July 24, 2020 at 10:47 am #641823ChristopherParticipantNo badges.

I for myself put charcoal to the side for the moment but if it’s about rendering in charcoal I would suggest Steve Huston’s and maybe Chris Legaspi’s videos about rendering in charcoal. I assume you already did but just in case 😁👍
If I’m correct Chris learned from Steve and they both have a similar but beautiful style of charcoal rendering. Their way of teaching also goes hand in hand since both articulate the principles in a simple way while I found Chris’s teaching to be more simple/beginner friendly and Steve on the other hand really goes in depth.
Good luck 👍👋July 26, 2020 at 12:47 pm #644368
Weird the upload of day 10 didn’t work. I tried Chris Legasp but I skipped the last charcoal lessons, because wasn’t a fan of the process and wanted to clear Steve and Ilya his lessons first, but i took a break from them after I found there were lesson from Sheldon. So I went back to the basics and will try later again or give Villpu a try.
Day 10 – Drawing with a pen. Like the sketchy stuff and where I can’t erase the drawing.
