Ok so im a complete amatuer but i love drawing, and the idea of drawing. Unfortunately i still suck, but what id really like some help with right now is using shading.
the example here is my hand which i drew a moment ago, but when doing a self portrait i have the same problem...i can identify some major shadows but i have a lot of trouble using light and dark to show things like veins in my hands or give my hand/face more definition and shape. making it more believable. i just cant see the subtleties in light well enough to put pencil to paper and bring it out
does this make sense? how should i practise/learn shading to get good at it...
hopefuly this attachment works..
i want to add more detail but how, and what! and not to mention the shadowy bit looks very unco
