• Get out your sketchbook and a pencil.
• Create a value scale.
• Draw 6 squares in your sketchbook.
• Use crossed lines to create a dark value in the far-left box.
• Space the lines out in the next box to create a lighter value.
• Continue to go lighter until you have even steps from the far left to the far right, leave
the last box the white of the paper.
• Using crossed lines to create value is called CROSS HATCHING.
• A strong sketch includes a range of value, reference this scale in future sketches to
make sure you have a range of darks and lights.
