Shading Practice


Sketching and drawing are definitely a challenge but a very welcome one. I never knew how peaceful it feels to hold a pencil and make stuff appear on a page with it.

The original photo:

My sketch with some shading:

It isn’t finished but it’s coming along.

And a big thank you to the lovely folks who offered useful advice to help me hone my craft. I basically just copied my photo (no tracing!!!), but I know that if I plan on drawing any more bodies, I will need to study anatomy and proportion.

For the moment, I am happy to work on bits and pieces. I am thinking of an ass drawing next… hmmm…. And hands. Perhaps hands and asses. Imagine the possibilities. I don’t think I am ready for that…🤣.

Yay art!
