Hi Aleksey!

This is a well done graduation, but the heavy tooth of the paper you are using prevents me from seeing the individual hatching lines. This is a very challenging type of graduation and you should invest a little more practice time.

Please redo this graduation by
- using a paper with a slightly smoother tooth
- keeping your pencils sharpened so the hatching lines are visible
- making the graduation progress over a longer distance

Some of the techniques you will learn in the next few weeks require the hatching lines to be slightly noticeable so as to create textures. Hence, this skill needs to be very strong. I have attached a graduation that may help you better understand what is expected in this assignment. :o)
