Our Art Teacher spoke to us today: "I am very proud of you. Not of the results. The results are not very good. But you are all trying very hard and that I'm proud of."

I tried my teachers hatching method today. Its super messy close up but it kinda works from further away...


@Ayior messy from close-up is actually not a problem. it actually helps giving energy to a drawing. Something that felt very counter-intuitive at first, in my drawing classes too. :)

@eylul yeah, also its the foundation for going into more detail. also its more fun that my old approach - you work from big to small, always noting the next biggest thing you see and this way you actually keep a lot of fun dynamics :D
