I have started practicing drawing, starting with the skeleton and stick figures and moving to rough outline anatomy sketches, posing etc.
I can draw the outside edge of a figure, and just some lines for details inside the figure itself. However none of my books really touch on the subject of shading. I'm most interested in modern comic shading, such as what's done in Topcow or Marvel comics these days.
I've looked for more books on shading, and cant find a good one so far. I see the end result from other art, but dont know how to practice getting there. Shading is tough to grasp for me. It looks really wrong.
Here is an example of shading that I like. It is not my drawing, it is a sketch I got from one of you guys. His name was something Chan. All credit to him.
But I want to shade like this, and need study aids to help. Any suggestions? If I had step-by-step for a drawing like this from start to finish, that would help me see how it is done.
