I found an image that I liked well enough to spend time on.
|Mesopotamia hittite image|
I downloaded a couple of pages from Dover Pictura and got to work with a light pencil sketch.
Then I covered this sketch with a pen tracing.
You can still see a tiny bit of the pencil shading that I did on it.
I went back in and pulled out the shading so I would have a better idea for placement of the contrast shading.
|This scan has been darkened to show details.|
Then the details with a pen.
I seem to do better with that instead of crosshatching.
To each her own, right?
