Crosshatching in Manga Studio by Robert A. Marzullo

This is a basic cross hatching exercise that I like to do.  It doesn't have much of the fancy line work that you see in hyper detailed comics but it still teaches you a lot about how cross hatching can work. You can be extremely messy with it and it will still show value in your study.  I picked this character to draw because age gives you lots of nice shadows and shapes to work with and can be a bit tricky to get right.  It is a lot easier to shade a character in grey tones or paint than it is to do with cross hatching. ( At least for me anyways! :) So I find this sort of exercise helpful and educational.

If you would like to see this in a step by step fashion, just visit the link below.  This was a video request so be sure to get yours in if there is a certain topic you would like to see covered on my channel.
