Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I have used pen and ink with cross hatching techniek. I found it really hard to create a soft face with cross hatching

What advice would you give someone starting this project? do it over and over again. this is my first attempt. I have also done it with dry ink and water color with a much better result. just wanted to put this in for some advice on how to do it better.

Perhaps shorter strokes would give a more delicate feel.....what do you think?

I think it is great. The only thing I would suggest is to avoid marking the boundary of the lips with a sharp line; it makes them look somewhat artificial. The higher density of hatching on the lips is enough to suggest their form, and adding a contour line to them makes them seem to bulge out in an unnatural way. But the whole work looks great to me.
