  1. Wow. NO one has ever explained crosshatching or shown detailed examples of how to follow shapes. It makes sense to me now… This isn't the video I saw linked to my drawing teacher's resources, but also valuable. Thank you.

  2. Excellent video. Just started drawing 35 days ago. Am a senior. Enjoying this hobby very much. Your tutorial is very much to the point and easy to follow and understand. Just the video that I was looking for. Subscribing for more of these good tutorials. Thank you 🙏 so much.

  3. Alfonso, thank you so much for your tutorials! I really appreciate them! I just wish that the camera was positioned so we could actually see the pen meeting the paper while you are drawing rather than looking at your hand and seeing the drawing only when your hand is moved out of the field of vision.

  4. Hello
    Alphonso. I bought your Pen and ink drawing last year and now just started the workbook. It is really awesome practice, exactly what I’d been needing! Question: did you intend for the hand / base of hand to maintain position when changing line direction (for example exercise 1.4) or it is ok to adjust? What about rotating paper?

  5. Hii.. Thankyou so much sir fir these video nd playlist.. U r gr8 sir.. I m from India.. Nd I really want to learn this art.. Day by day ur videos help me to became an artist… Thanks God that we have mentor nd teacher like you.. Thankyou sir😊

  6. Thank you so much. I have watched half a dozen videos on hatching before I came to this. It annoyed me so much that they could not just show off the basics. Your videos really do the trick. It's admirable how you manage to pass off so much information with the kind of high quality graphic productions that some other art youtubers have. Greetings from Norway.

  7. Thank youuuuuu soooooo much!!!!!!
    Your video help a lot. I'm a student of Fashion design but my sketching and illustrating skills are like 3/10. But after watching your videos and practicing I improved a lot.

  8. I love how everyone’s so at ease and genuinely kind in this comment section. The age and background diversity are also amazing.

  9. Thank you.
    Definitely get the camera off to the left and slightly down pointing to the right and up. That way your hand won't get in the way.
    And lock the focus.
    Keep it up.

  10. I'm not sure why your videos started showing up in my recommended listings, but I'm really enjoying them. Thank you for posting them and keeping them up for a few years!

  11. Hello Alphonso. I'm Janina from the Philippines. I just want to commend you on doing such a great job in your tutorials. It really means so much to me. I haven't drawn in years. But due to the pandemic, I found some time to re discover my passion for art. That's when I found your tutorials. I feel like I'm starting from square one but thats ok. I think mastering the basics will get me far. I wish you all the best in life and on your career. It's so amazing how you inspire a lot of people with just paper, pencil and ink. I love how it's so simple yet profound. Keep up the good work and keep inspiring people 😊

  12. I used to draw sometimes as a kid but don't exactly know what kept me away from art for so many years. Really wish to start afresh by learning from you 🙂

    Thanks & keep posting! !!
