I see Mr. Weigle's work and it makes me flash back to high school art class He is talented. However, I just viewed a few pieces of his lesson sketches. I do work semi-professionally in many different tonal drawing techniques. Tonal values used in the pencil sketches are primarily pre-line outline then leading to tonal cross hatching. The view of heavy lines in the light source side has less distinction thus the tone causes the eye to view an imaginary line on parts of the subject. This of course is realistic style. Catoons?, well one can use this method of heavy to thin or light to dark outlines. Beginners play around with outlines more than the veteran as they compose their work with less need to focus intensely on tonal shaping. Of course you know this. Texture folds is the real challenge such as; skin, straight-haired pelts, wool pelts, sheer materials (lol), I am pretty sure that one could learn from a good teacher about these things. I will need to examine more. Thenks

Your right. I thing what it comes down to is having a good composition, a well organized drawing and being very sensitive to the texture of whatever it is your rendering. Thank you for your comments & kind words. Cheers!
