A very useful tutorial! Thanks really really much! I just have one itsy bitsy question: for shading, do you draw tiny lines, or do you do something else?

Ah... never considered this... XD

Umm... I use soft strokes so that I can cover the area I want the shading to be... and always in the same direction... so they could count as tiny lines... sometimes I change the direction according to the area, but not so randomly... the only times I cross other lines in a different direction would be when I want to add an extra shadow... and some times I just follow the main line of the body and muscles with soft strokes while shading...

Then again, there are the times I draw for the sake of drawing and I don't really consider any quality rules...

But technically you should try keep the shading lines parallel and in the main direction the light is hitting from (if you really want the shading lines to show a bit, especially), because it's the light that makes the shadow, of course. ^^

Hope I didn't confused you even more XD

huh. A brush. interesting. though I'm never hard enough with my hand to actually smear anything =P. I'll have a few unused brushes laying around after I graduate though (right now tied up in ceramics waxing/glazing junk) so I'll have to give that a try.

Hey, you're talking to a guy who draws near-constantly :laughing: When it comes to tools new info isn't something I come across often~
