  1. This video really shows how lighting and shading affects the depth of a drawing. I like how the colored cylinders included red showing how the light variations affect the tone. I’m sure if you follow this video step by step the result will be more complex drawings with proper texture and picture quality.

    I like the shading exercises, it’s so easy and so much fun. I feel like I can do it while I’m riding the bus or the train. The background music is really catchy.

    In theory I know how lighting and shading works. However, when I create, say, a scenery with two-three people with furniture or whatever included, my shading just doesn’t look right. I think I get confused on how much light foreground and background objects get…

    This is one of my weaknesses in painting characters especially the shading of the clothes. Very helpful for me here.

    I agree Rebi! (Is it pronounced as REH-BI or RIB-EYE?) Clothes shading is very hard! Especially if there are many folds, like in this case, the trousers!. Practice, practice, practice!

    One thing I learned from this tutorial is: you can enhance shading by changing direction of the strokes. Genius! Very simple yet makes a lot of difference.

    There are so many things I learned from this video. First, I learned how to properly do shading. Second, I also learned how to draw a shaded sphere. And the best part, I learned all of this for free. Isn’t that amazing?

    From what I remember Brajit does not seem to look like that. I have not seen it for long so I could be wrong.

    It’s mind-blowing to see how a flat shape can have dimensions when you shade it. You just have to keep in mind where the light is coming from!

    Very, very educational! Shading is very difficult but Marcos here made it very easy. I just have to pause it a lot of times to read the text (which is very small!) Also, the background music can be improved. Maybe a slower tempo? Doesn’t have to be upbeat and fast-paced all the time. Cheers!
