Secrets of Shading gives you the foundational knowledge you will need to render organic forms from imagination and better understand your references.
We begin with diagrams and exercises to help you understand shading and rendering as “drawing on the inside” of dimensionally conceived forms, and move on to several practical demonstrations.
The demonstrations are done with pencil and provide insight into working with graphite, but the concepts are applicable to all media. The videos total five hours of content and all chapters are fully narrated. All videos are 1080p full HD.
