  1. I have about fifty books published, by Random House, on How-To-Draw everything from manga to cartons and figure drawing. Just look up "Christopher Hart" on Amazon, and they'll all come up. I hope you'll take a look. And thank you for viewing my video.

  2. Hah i wish! then i would have more money to do stuff…*Get's an idea* Be right back, Seeing if mum want's to pay me to say random thing's to stranger's :3

  3. Great video! Could you perhaps do a tutorial on cross hatching/pen and ink style art? I have recently gotten into the art of R. Crumb and I have been trying to figure out his shading technique, but boy I am having a hell of a time at it! 

  4. Sir, this was great. Not only did you show me where to shade this particular drawing, but you explained why there is shading in certain areas. I got a much better understanding of shading now and I think I can apply it to other drawings as well.

  5. It feels like you taught me a technique rather than how to draw a specific drawing.
    Much obliged.
    I'm definitely going to check out your books.

  6. Yup, this is more my style. I love comic/realistic style of drawing, it's just super fun and appealing. At least to me.
