Yes indeedy! I will definitely improve it before this COW ends, i think your wise words will help quite a bit!
glad i could help :)
As for my shading tactics, I use photoshop cs2, and I:
-Lay down solid color
-add shading on the same layer
-use a more opaque brush with the original color, around 20 -30 percent to blend in
-touch it up with the smudge tool
nice it works really well, i tend to do shadings on different layers and use the soften tool to blend colors in, and sometimes the smudge tool.
oh and i do the shadings with a slightly darker colour with a 4-5 pixel brush at 20% opacity, blend in, and keep shading, then i do a second shading with an even darker color at 40-50% opacity and 2-3 px.
highlights are pretty much the same
then i tend to do what comes to me, burning, sharpening, softening, blurring etc etc... whatever i think looks best :)
anyway keep the good stuff coming! your a really good artist
