Topography Experiment by johannachambers Topography Experiment by johannachambers
Another self portrait, 8" x 10". Various shades of grey Pitt markers. I like the feel of these markers (the kind that taper like a brush), but clearly I am not very good at crosshatching. I have a hard time keeping it even. Overall I don't like this much, but it was a fun experiment.

Hey thanks for posting this! This is basically my current project in my art class, and I wasn't exactly sure how I wanted to go about creating.

Your picture was very helpful, thanks. :D

Do you have crosshatched pieces I could look at? I have been looking for examples...I am thinking about trying this again, in Illustrator, so that the lines would actually be straight and I'd have better control over the spacing.
PS Have you been feeling better lately?

hm... the very first pictures in my gallery include a lot of crosshatching ^^

yeah, at least a bit better. Still trying to get a job that suits my skills, it's pretty difficult... :|
