Anyway nice art!
...how do you shade so nicely?
I don't really have a steady technique but what I think usually looks the prettiest to me is done by:
Determining the light source and blending light to dark by increasing the texture density, with the light part directed to the light source.
The 'texture' can be crosshatching (which looks neatest when you sorta follow the curves of the object), dots, a lizard,dragon, fur... whatever pattern. Also a nice trick is to make the pattern bigger on the side that is closest to you.
So here's a portrait done in the holiday of the worlds most favorite murderer.
