Drawspace lesson I05: How to draw a striped fur

Hi all,

We continue to draw animal drawing and this time we do stripes. I immediately thought of Zebras and Tigers, as those who has such a fur. So, at least, when I draw a Tiger, not everything will be new to me.

Two types of fur presented here: circular and wavy.
I don't know what's the mistake I made here. It just doesn't really look like fur. So I tried to draw it again.
While doing this second set I thought that maybe the reason for the fur being unrealistic is that my hatches are too even in it's length. As much as I tried to vary the lines, it was not easy. So I think I'll put it to my "lessons to repeat" list.

Hope you were more  successful here then I was,
Dalia
