hsi Rebbecak, thabnks for making me feel welcome. I've been an artist for as long as i can remember and have always sought to improve and refine my own style.
I havent been schooled in art due to a crap 1st art teacher who tried to discourage me but it never stopped me wanting to be an artist. My leaning and evolution as an artist has been defined by a determined and perhaps sometimes blinkered drive to do my own thing, to try and make a valid artistic statement.
This has sometimes been at the expense of learning the basics and my learning has sometimes felt like 2 steps forward and one step back but self expression and a love of creating has always driven me forwards and will continue to do so!
This is my second anatomy piece and whilst i feel it isnt 100% a reproduction of the original i hope thatit captures the essence of the original...a bit:)

I'm always disappointed to hear stories about art teachers who have done more harm than good, I've had my fair share of bad art teachers and it was always trying, but then I've also had good ones that opened my eyes to new things, and that's what you look for. :) I think that with your last piece you have a nice sense of proportion and mass, the main thing I would recommend would be to shade more consistently.
I've put up the images for a cross hatching Tutorial here, which I hope you might find useful: :)
