Cross Shading

Today I practised cross shading. This is really not easy. The space between my lines differ so much. I think I need a lot more practise to get them look nice.

This tower is kind of funny, because there is no need for a lighthouse in Cologne no sea nearby. Only the river Rhein. The Helios company had this lighthouse build in 1890 on their company area for tests and demonstrations. Helios produced among other things lightfires for lighthouses.

    hi nik, great drawings! I think you’ve got the cross-hatching down already — my lines are all unevenly spaced for it, I think it adds character! Nice work. Cheers.
