I joined this site because I want help in improving both my IRL drawing skills and my cartooning. I'm nowhere as near as good as some of the people on this site, but I really want to try and get better.
Right now, I'm looking for some advice on crosshatching--I'll get to that later tonight, as I have a few sketches in a notebook of mine. In the meantime, I have a couple of old sketches from a class I took last semester.
The first one is of a dog named Jake, from an assignment to do a quick 15-minute sketch. I had a little trouble with this one--he just didn't want to stay still. I eventually got it, though. I think if I were to go back and revise this, I'd add shading.
The second is from a modified contour line picture assignment I did. Again, I would go back and definitely add shading, as right now it seems a little flat. And the second-to-last finger is a bit thin.
