Hatching with Ruler

I enjoyed this exercise and approached it much differently than I did on my other drawings. Here I took a small ruler and used it to draw straight edges or lines wherever I needed. I found that it was much more effective and the drawing turned out alot cleaner than just some ragged lines and cross hatching. The straight lines brought out more of the vertical hatching technique as well and made objects look defined. Only a little bit of hatching seemed necessary to define each object, otherwise it seemed to over power it.

I think you did really good at hatching this drawing, especially since you kept the lines really consistent, the only thing that I think you should work on is the difference in contrast, just add more lines to some of the darker areas to create a darker hatch with ink
