Hydro74 | MCMLXXIV Crosshatching Crosshatching is the layering of planes of parallel lines on top of each other in order to create a gradient or texture in a drawing. Crosshatching has an "old-fashioned" stigma, probably for good reason: drawing lines side-by-side, and then on top of each other, is a great solution to a problem inherent in pen & ink drawing and printmaking: How do you make a drawing tonal if all you have to work with is black and white? With digital tools at our disposal, as well as relatively new products like Zipotone, Craftint and DuoShade, it's easy to see why crosshatching isn't considered cutting edge. However, I don't personally believe that a technique in itself can be old-fashioned; I think that comes out of how the artist uses the technique. Below is a primer on crosshatching for the beginner or for those who want to hone their craft. Styles of Crosshatching1) Tight, accurate lines. GradientsTwo kinds of gradients below. Consistency Consistent line weight. Labels: Tips and Tricks

Gorgeous Hand Drawn Illustrations by Si Scott Here you have a series of illustrations called “animals” by Si Scott. Every design is hand drawn perfection! You can tell he has an incredible attention to detail. Enjoy! Tyrsa Who am I In 1999 Alexis Taïeb discovered graffiti. As his first works had barely dried on the walls he knew that he had found a love for life. This love for typography became a natural guide into a new profession. Shortly after graduating, in 2008, Alexis became a freelancer with a focus on print and web design. For Alexis, typography is just the starting point of his work. Y. Qui suis-je Dès 99, Alexis Taïeb découvre le graffiti et y fait ses premières armes, ses premières esquisses de lettres. En 2008, il se lance à plein temps en free-lance, aussi à l’aise en web qu’en print, ses qualités et son exigence le font très vite apprécier des différentes agences Parisiennes, parmi lesquelles figurent Betc Euro RSCG, Publicis, DDB, SID LEE, etc. Que ce soit à partir d’un brief à fortes contraintes ou d’un projet avec une totale liberté, qu’elle soit illustrative ou plus traditionnelle, la typographie est le point de départ et le centre des réflexions du travail d’Alexis Taïeb.

Relationship Rules Human beings crave intimacy, need to love and be loved. Yet people have much trouble doing so. It's clear from the many letters I get that lots of folks have no idea what a healthy relationship even looks like. Because I care about these things, and care about the environments children grow in, I'm using this space as an attempt to remedy the problem—again. From many sources and many experts, I have culled some basic rules of relationships. Choose a partner wisely and well. Bohemian Dreams in Digital Art Somewhere between the work of Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam lies the beautifully imaginative art of Alexander Jansson. His digital painting style is full of fuzzy fauna, twisted flora and plenty of stylish victorian houses… all with the dark and mysterious look you would expect in some bohemian’s dream. The deliciously rich and inviting colors beg your eye to explore the many layers of detail: lighted homes on elephants backs, glowing lanterns over shimmering water. See Also Reality With a Layer of Dreams Born in Uppsala, Sweden, Jansson now lives and works in Gothenburg where he runs his own design studio, Sleeping House. Ready to see this art animated? ↬ inspirefirst Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea.

Ed Fairburn How to Draw Hands This short tutorial is a just a small taste of a larger and much more in-depth book I wrote called The Mad Art of Caricature! The book is 175 full-color pages, lavishly illustrated and contains greatly expanded explanations of the concepts presented in this tutorials, as well and a great deal of additional material on caricaturing other facial features, posture, hands, expression and more, techniques on drawing from live models, doing caricature for freelance illustration and for MAD Magazine. This is a must have book for anyone interested in caricature, cartooning or humorous illustration. You can order it online here. How to Draw Hands Easily the most asked question I get is “how do you draw caricatures?”. Next to faces, hands are probably the most expressive and intricate part of the human form. I’m a cartoonist at heart, so the hands I draw are not realistic hands by most definitions. Breaking Down Hand Structure Not really much to it, is there? Relationships of Hand Structure
