Hey friends!

In this drawing lesson I wanted to let you in on me exercising my shading skillz, while drawing a female figure’s back.

I think the scanner made it look even more grainy, but still looks pretty nice.

Here are the main tips I have to offer:

1. Use a relatively soft (and dark) pencil, such as the B scale. You really want to be able to create those dark tones.

2. Hold the pencil at a lower angle. That way you get more lead-paper contact, and it’s easier to keep things light.

3. Work in small circles. This little trick will help make sure you get a gentle, even tone.
