Lessons Learned From 10 Years of Shading

The past ten years of my career as an artist have been an extended experiment with graphite. It is the only medium I work with and one I find endlessly intriguing and challenging. There is no ‘right’ way to shade, and as a self-taught artist I know little about the drawing techniques taught at art schools. Instead, I’ve had to find my own way. Here is a tutorial on the shading techniques I have developed over time with plenty of patience and many, many blending stumps. Let me know what techniques you use or what you would like me to talk about in the next video.

Thanks for the support 🙂 For more of my work visit:
