It looks awesome...
Is this done by ball pens and marker?
and the color by crayons?
Well, another question..
some one told me that..when you make shade by pencil..you shouldn't smooth them out!
Is that true?

ballpen and crayons

the problem with smoothing out pencil is that sometimes you get a weird plastic look from it
if you crosshatch in a good way you can get a really nice feel

here it's not nice at all, it's just a simple sketch, wanted to get the idea on paper so that I wouldn't forget it
but you should also adapt to your medium - for instance with ink or ballpen you crosshatch in a certain way - you can only draw lines of certain width, with pencil maybe in a slightly different way, charcoal different again, pastel etc.
and even within these media you can use different styles - fill the object with crosshatching or just infer a bit the volume from a few strokes

the crosshatching is still too... "crossed" and doesn't shade properly to push forward the shape
google crosshatching (images) or search on youtube for tutorials it will help you see the process - I'm not very good at it either
