I love it!! Especially the lines on the face, because those are just right, which is crucial (especially with women, because you need to do thinner lines to give a softer aspect, as opposed to men)

Maybe in some areas you may want to do the lines going in one direction only, to give more volume and a greater contrast with the rest (kinda like how you did it with the face, btw). I was thinking of the flowers on her hat, but tbh, I can't see many more areas where you could have done that :)
Ah, yes, the top of her back, the white lines I assume you added after kind of cut the movement. (but not at the bottom of her dress)

Great job! :D

Thanks. I'm constantly strugling with croshatching. It's so difficult to know when to stop adding new lines. I have to try what you suggested.

I feel you… What you can do when you mess up, which happens, is to use a white gell pen to do some lines over it to soften them.
For example, this drawing I did was too dark in some areas (especially the face) so I did that:…

Kiva, kevyt ja tuo mieleen vanhat kuparipiirrokset 1800-luvulta. Onnistunut työ! (Vähän voisi tietty daamilla olla pitemmät ripset, niin olisi feminiinisempi, mutta mitäs pienistä!)

Kiva, että mielyttää. Ripset ovat hankalia ainakin minulle. Tulee aina vedettyä överiksi, täytyy siis jatkaa harjoittelua.

Ripset ja kulmat OVAT hankalia. :)

Looks superawesome! I'm no professionally educated artist, but I've noticed that hatching with white lines over the black, that digital allows us, confuses me, so I prefer myself linework based on black ob white only. But you seem to deal with it quite well, catching the light.

I was just about to tip Avaruus about your site, but then I saw you'd already commented. :P Anyways you're both super talanted!!!

I prefer only black linework also, but I figured to give it a try. over all I prefer traditional inking over digital because traditional is much more accurate. The thing is that i'm kinda lazy and draggin my lighttable and nibs out just for a quick study feels like too much work sometimes.
