Thank you for telling us a bit about yourself! That's a really impressive drawing for someone who's just graduated from high school! Are you planning to pursue art at all in college? If only as a hobby, I would encourage you to do so. There's a lot to be said for doing things for personal satisfaction in life, even if those things don't become a career for you.

Happy to help in any way I can! It's great to see the work you guys/gals are posting. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Well, as Rebeccak already said, cross-hatching isn´t a rocket sience but I still have some basic questions. I run into the problem which surface direction I should use for the hatching or should I even mix them? I saw several versions and mixes and I´m a bit confused. Do the stroke itself also follow the surface with some bending of itself or should they all be small straight ones? How much do I cross them?

As you can see here, sometimes I mixed the types 1 and 2 to 3 - and even 3 and 4 together. Am I searching for a sience where none can be found? Maybe I search too much rules because of my 3D background?

I used a simple black ballpen. I think I also need to get rid of this cartoonline surrounding the stuff. But in this case some areas looked not so clear without it.
Thanks to Roberto for the inspiration
