Your artwork never ceases to amaze me with your talent. I particularly enjoy looking at an artist's sketches. (It's interesting to see how much their art relies on color. Your art is great either way.) Your scraps are even great. ;D I love your shading as well.
Question, if you have time to bother a read and reply...
I'm currently taking a figure drawing course, and I've noticed a lot of accomplished artists are extremely skilled with the cross-hatching style of shading, which is a style I love. I'm looking at the shoulder blades of the girl in the bottom middle (the only back you can see). When I'm trying to shade as such I start blending too much and come out with something a little more like second girl at the top. Any suggestions on getting that sketchy-looking shading rather than the blur/blended looking shading? (other than practice of course, that comes without saying).
Thanks. I actually enjoy looking at sketches rather than finished work a lot of the time. Glad you've posted this up.

Yahooo for Michelle'inka art dumps *_______*^333^!!! I love how with all these girl sketches you seem to be exploring different poses of the body, as it creates for a very interesting assortment of sketches when looking at them<3! The girl anatomy is so fit, elongated, and expressive and I bet it creates for great and fun experiments with molding and posing the body as you demonstrated here my precious! I always looove the way you do your anatomy and these series of random sketches are definitely no exception! Bunny ears and cyber suites seems to be the perfect slice of heaven !!! I now sit here and wait for the next amazing sketch volume that you'll hopefully inevitably make ^_______^<333!
Weeeeee ^________^ Thanks Ivan my sweetie-pie!!! I definitely gotta say that posing is really fun to work with and helps to hone skills in that area too if done repeatedly (but of course haha, anything practiced alot will make for much desired progress for sure hehe <333)! LOL and mmmm yesss hehe, bunny ears and cyber suits (I just now realized I spelled *suits* wrong until now, gahhhhh LOL) are definitely a delightful combo! Now if only there was a bunny girl IN a cyber suit hahaha!! And yup, a new volume of sketches will most definitey be over the horizon ^_____^! Thank you Ivan'ushka my precious for your kind favs!! !
