well, since i was a kid i've never changed my pencil holding grip to the proper one, which is gripping the pencil between index and thumb, with middle finger giving support below.
the way i hold it is like this (kinda weird lol) : pencil rests on the bend between thumb and index finger, and both index and middle finger rest on top of the pencil.
pencil is then supported by my 4th finger.
i was just wondering if this would affect my drawing in any way lol if it does have an affect im going to start changing my habit ASAP.
i drew with my mouse my left hand witih the grip if you don't get what i mean, haha.
also, was wondering what kind of pencil shading techniques do guys like whit brachna, wes burt, marko djurdjevic use? is it mostly cross hatching? or do they just lightly shade the things they draw with very light strokes. i very much love that style of pencil drawing and was just wondering how they do it.
thanks in advance,
