wow.... so ive finally gotten to making this tutorial... i hope it is not to difficult to understand since i am not particularly good with words, and my shading technique is kind of intuitive ^^ but people have been asking me to make a tutorial on my technique and i have promised that i would make one, so here goes.
many thanks for taking the time to do this ^^ its really helpful1!!!!!
Thanks for the tutorial!
thank you for doing this, it has been really helpful.

Great gallery as well!
wooooowwww thank you so much for this tutorial!!! its so nice that u took the time to do this... i love how you can see step by nstep how you shade a drawing from beginning to end. and it s not so bad with the scanner problems, it is still clear what you point you want to bring across.
thanks so much!! i m glad i can help well good to hear that the bad quality scans dont bother you!! ^^
thanks for taking the time to make it. I really think I can learn a lot from it!!
Also: beautiful drawing Katness
youre welcome ^^ i m glad i can help! and thank you so much for the nice words its much appreciated ^^
I so love this, thank you.
ohh thank you thank you . Here's a question , how do you decide which part of the drawing you will sketch first ? like where is the best starting point ? . thank you in advance
haha, youre welcome i m gad you like it!! okay... im not exactly sure what you are talking about? do mean where i start shading? because if thats what you mean i wrote about that in the tutorial, my teachers taught me to start on the right side because i am lefthanded, and then work my way to the left so i dont smudge the drawing... but i just dont like doing that ^^ so i start anywhere i want and usually somewhere in the middle and then just put a spare sheet of paper under my hand/arm to avoid smudging but if i understand you correctly you are asking where to start the initial sketch? as in how to start with the overall proportions. for that i have to say i work pretty intuitively... there are a lot of ways and thechniques you can use to get the proportions right, and there are a lot of helpful tutorials here on dA for that ^^ for me, i usually start by drawing the outlines of the whole head, and like the jaw and cheekbones and then estimate more or less where the rest should be going from there.. i m really sorry its so difficult for me to explain because i dont really use any special technique or guidelines to get the proportions right... i just ... yeah... draw intuitively i guess... although that does force me to start over sometimes because i didnt get the proportions right ^^
Yeah i meant the the initial sketch , so thank you for taking time to reply . anyway i thought i can benefit from any tips someone talented as you can give me , "but it seems like everyone follow there hearts and do it " just like what i do hahaha . so thank you again
One book I read just said shade the left side of the page first (if you're right handed. Vice versa for left) so you don't smudge.
Nice tutorial! Thanks for sharing!
