What type of piece is this? Drawing 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 Is the piece for sale? No What are you most proud of? That the person is recognisable 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.

Q&A with kate hamilton

Cilla Shaw asked:
Great work kate
kate hamilton answered:
thanks!
Kay English asked:
Perhaps shorter strokes would give a more delicate feel.....what do you think?
kate hamilton answered:
thanks for the tip I will try that
Eduardo Hernandez asked:
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.
