    Shading practice

    This is very simple but based on some tutorials suggested by aunt Betsy. It's very basic, but that's where I need to start. When I get shading and light right I'll work on hatching.

    I used the shader and the knife and of course, a pencil. Should I use the knife or just stick with the shader?

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.

    35 views no replies. I guess that's an answer, I'll do it again.

    Should I use the knife or just stick with the shader?? Looks pretty good to me, but it depends on the effect you want. Try both and see how you like it, but they're pretty good efforts....

    Ok, I wasn't sure what the 'proper' way to do it was. I'm starting to realize that in some areas there is no wrong or right, just whatever works. Thanks.

    Ok, thanks. I saved it and will use it for a reference.
