So, as you may have noticed. i SUCK at shading. Any advice?
my advice is to first determine your light source. draw a sun or something real light on your paper, where the light source will be from, and make little lines in the direction the light is traveling. then just shade accordingly. google faces or just pictures in general and notice the way light reflects off skin, metals, clothing, ect. to get a feel of how to shade different objects
and continuing on the pens and inking, i personally use Prismacolor Premier Fine Line Markers, basically, glorified tech pens, but either way, better than some gel pen. oce you try them out, you will notice, there is definetely a difference between pens you throw around at school and pens you ink with :)
